and such charitable corporations reporting to the Board as ask

h. Investigation, with public hearing, and report to the Sec- 
retary of the Commonwealth in all cases of applications for the 
incorporation of charitable organizations. 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 7 

c. Publication of the results of visitation and inspection, with 
tabulated statements regarding the number of paupers and the 
cost of public poor relief. 

d. Recommendations to the Legislature for changes in old 
laws and the enactment of new ones. 

a. Visitation. 

The direct visitation of the State institutions and of the 
private charitable corporations specified in Acts of 1909, chap- 
ter 379. as well as the investigation under Acts of 1910, chap- 
ter 181, of charities seeking incorporation, is made bv commit- 
tees and officials of the Board, as directed in the by-laws. The 
results of this visitation, with the three exceptions noted below, 
are given on pp. IS et seq. of this part of the Report. (1) 
The investigation of associations which have applied for charters 
since the Acts of 1910. chapter ISI, went into effect will be 
found in Part 11. (pp. i-v'), which is devoted exclusively to 
private charitable corporations. (2) The inspection of chari- 
table agencies provided for by Acts of 1909, chapter 379. is 
taken up in Part II. (pp. v-xii). (3)' The results of almshouse 
inspection are given in full in Part III. The inspector has, 
during the official year, visited every almshouse once, 21 have 
been visited twice, and 1 three times. In addition, the inspector 
has conferred with Overseers of the Poor of 37 different cities 
and to^vns in matters pertaining to almshouse conditions and 
management and other matters concerning the work of the 
Board. 

Members of the Board have, from time to time, made visits 
to almshouses : in most cases to consider the condition of the 
buildings and the welfare of the inmates. The subject of visita- 
tion should not be touched upon without commending the kind- 
ness and consideration of the Board's Almshouse Visitors. 

When trouble has been foimd. and in consequence, the atten- 
tion of the Overseers has been called to faulty conditions, it is 
pleasant to note that in the great majority of these case? the 
Overseers have been inclined to provide a remedy, and have 
manifested a most kindly concern for the inmates under their 
care. 



STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 



h. Puhlication. 

In addition to its full Annual Report, of which 2,000 copies 
are printed, there are issued under the law, for the use of the 
Board, 500 copies of so much of the Report as relates to the city 
and town almshouses and statistics of paupers supported bv 
cities and towns, and 1,000 copies of so much as relates to char- 
itable corporations. 

The Pauper Abstract found in Part III. of the Report fur- 
nishes many details respecting the poor supported or relieved 
by each city and town during the past year — their numbers, 
condition, treatment, and cost — in a tabulated form which 
facilitates comparison. The facts are gathered from the con- 
tinuous record of the permanent poor which has been kept by 
this Board for many years, from the annual returns of Over- 
seers of the Poor, and, as regards cost especially, from the pub- 
lished town reports. The statistics require returns for the year 
terminating March 31, and accordingly the numbers and classi- 
fications of persons supported or relieved relate to that period 
strictly; the expenditures and receipts on pauper account 
should relate to the same period, but quite generally among the 
small tovnis the figures are drawn from the annual reports as 
covering nearly the specified period. In all cases, however, the 
accoimts cover the most recent completed year. Nothing better 
can be secured until the adoption of a uniform town year and 
a uniform system of account. 

It appears from the Abstract that within the year covered the 
whole number of cases receiving support or relief from the 
cities and towns — excluding vagrants — was 71.445, of whom 
12,087 (7,445 males and 4,642 females) received full support. 
This is an increase of 3,283, or 4.8 per cent., in the whole num- 
ber; and of 189, or 1.5 per cent., in full support, as compared 
with the year preceding. 

Of the total number fully supported, 10,660 were in the town 
almshouses, 563 in various institutions, chiefly those of the 
State, and 864 in private families, a decrease of 465 in private 
families, but an increase of 792 in almshouses and a decrease 
of 154 in other institutions, as compared with 1909-10. 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 9 

The number of instances of temporary aid or partial support 
is reported as 59,358, or, deducting 809 cases who also received 
full support a part of the year and were so counted, 58,549. 
This is 2,285 more than in 1909-10, or 4 per cent. 

Cases of vagrancy reported by the Overseers numbered 32,- 
300, a daily average of about 88, a few more than in 1909-10. 
The Overseers, however, generally report such only as come 
under their own care and are aided out of the pauper funds, 
while to a large extent vagrants are under police supervision. A 
full report of tramps would doubtless much increase the above 
figures. Their cost is included in the cost of partial support; 
where rendered by the Overseers it is very little, and not sepa- 
rable from the general cost. 

It is to be noted in this connection that " numbers relieved " 
means number of cases relieved and does not necessarily indi- 
cate separate individuals. Thus, when it is stated that 71,445 
persons received aid from the various cities and towns during 
the year, the actual fact is that this number represents a much 
smaller number of separate individuals. This variance arises 
from the fact that each new application for relief is considered 
as a new person, and the records kept by cities and towns deal 
with the case rather than the individual, and a person may 
thus apply for and receive aid several times during the year and 
be entered upon the books of the local authorities as a new case 
upon each application. Especially is this true in the case of 
numbers of tramps and vagrants reported. A tramp may, and 
by reason of his calling actually does, apply on each of several 
different days to the local authorities of as many different 
towns, and is reported as a new case in each instance. The 
32,300 tramps here reported should for this reason be read 
strictly as cases of aid given. 

The current expenditures by cities and towns during the year 
for pauper relief and support were $2,631,888.08, against 
$2,567,092 in 1909-10; the sum expended at the almshouse 
being $1,201,869.84, at other institutions $69,409.27, and in 
private families $156,683.31, making a total for full support 
of $1,427,919.87, while partial support was furnished to the 
amount of $975,892.82. The expenses of administration were 



10 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

$228,032.84. These outlays by cities and towns were in part 
offset by receipts and reimbursements amounting, from all 
sources, including the Commonwealth^ to $564,603.83, leaving 
the net expense for the year $2,067,650.06, as compared with 
$2,014,153 for the previous year, an increase of $53,497.06, 
or 2.6 per cent. The $975,892.82 expended in partial support 
for the 59,358 persons relieved would allow $15.43 for each 
case or $1.57 less than the previous year's allowance. 

The net cost of the poor in town almshouses has been $861,- 
078.54 against $827,463 for the previous year. The total 
number of pauper inmates having been 10,660, the weekly per 
capita cost was $3.92. The net cost at other institutions was 
$65,733.76; while support in private families cost $153,240.87. 
To the above should be added the extraordinary expenses, 
mostly at the almshouses, which in 1910-11 amounted to $75,- 
895.33. 

To sum up, the returns show that the net current expenses 
of the cities and towns for the support or relief of 71,445 cases 
within the year 1910-11, including $22 8,0 32; 84 for expenses 
of administration, Avas $2,067,650.06; an increase of 2.6 per 
cent, in the cost and 4.8 per cent, in the number of cases aided. 
The population of the State as shown by the census of 1910 was 
3,366,416; so that for the cities and towns as a whole there 
were 21.22 instances of aid given for each 1,000 of the popula- 
tion at a cost of about $0.97 for each inhabitant. 

The adult State poor, as distinguished from the insane and 
the criminal classes, if cared for in institutions, are found 
chiefly at the State Infirmary and in the pauper wards at the 
State Farm. The total number of cases of this class in these 
two institutions was 7,109. The cost of their maintenance 
cannot be exactly stated because these items are not separated on 
the books from expenditures for other classes of inmates. If, 
however, the per capita cost of maintenance be multiplied by the 
number of individuals, the result will be the approximate cost 
for the support of this class of persons. On this basis, the ex- 
pense for 1911 would be $23,422.52. 

Children cared for by the State are found in temporary homes 
and in private families. For the past year their total number 
was 5,439, supported at an expense of $591,236.49. 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 11 

The poor persons aided by the State outside of institutions, 
or otherwise than as above noted, are included in the corre- 
sponding class of the town's poor for the reason that all public 
outdoor relief, State as well as local, is dispensed with rare 
exceptions through the medium of the local overseers of the 
poor. The total instances of aid under this classification 
amounted to 11,467. 

In Part 11. of the Report are given abstracts of the reports 
of charitable corporations whose personal property is exempt 
from taxation, the reports being made annually to the Board, 
under the law. 

Of the 742 corporations whose returns were called for dur- 
ing the last official year. Q6 failed to report : 42 of these delin- 
quents have heretofore made the return. The remaining 676 
corporations filed reports, 65 of them for the first time. 

The Board hopes in time to secure returns from every char- 
ity which comes within the law, and thus make Part 11. a com- 
plete directory of such agencies. 

Xo attempt has been made to furnish totals of the statistics 
of these associations, since the basis of calculation adopted by 
them is not uniform, and a summary would therefore be mis- 
leading. To illustrate, many of the hospitals and dispensaries 
report the number of their out-patients by treatments and not 
by the individuals treated. 

The seriatim presentation of the separate reports serves well 
the primary purpose for which they are published, — that of 
acquainting the public with the work of the various incor- 
porated charitable agencies throughout the State. 

c. Legislation. 

The principal recommendations of the Board for legislative 
action are as follows : — 

1. Material increase in pathological work at the State In- 
firmary and at the several State sanatoria. 

2. The removal of the insane from the State Infirmary. 

3. Extensive revision of chapter 125 of the Revised Laws 
governing the incorporation of private charities. 

4. Transfer of the supervisory power from the State Board 



12 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

of Charity to the Commission on Probation in the matter of 
probation work for wayward and delinquent children. 

5. Extension of the supervisory powers of the State Board 
of Charity in the matter of settled minors to include persons 
placed out free. 

6. The installing of an electric lighting system at Penikese 
Hospital and improvement of the water approach to the wharf 
at Penikese Island. 

7. Extension of the powers of the Board in the reimburse- 
ment of aid rendered by cities and towns to persons without set- 
tlement. 

The Board reaflarms the recommendation in its preceding 
report that more emphasis be placed upon pathological research 
in the State hospitals. The opportunities open for study and 
the great value of the results sure to be obtained render such 
a course highly desirable. 

This Board has for years consistently recommended that the 
insane patients at the State Infirmary be removed. This insti- 
tution, already too large and already too complex, would, by 
such removal, and without increase in size, in spite of certain 
disadvantages in administration, add greatly to its capacity to 
carry out the real purposes for which it exists. 

The position taken by the Board in its last report, that exten- 
sive revision of the laws relating to the incorporation and the 
regulation of private charities has now become vitally necessary 
to the success of private charitable effort in Massachusetts, and 
as equally necessary to the State in maintaining without abuse 
the integrity of its charitable franchises, is here urgently re- 
affirmed. In all the departmental offices of the Commonwealth 
coming in contact with the creation and the conduct of chari- 
table charters, the absolute need of more sensible and more sys- 
tematic supervision is felt. 

The Board's recommendation that its supervisory powers be 
extended in the matter of supervision of settled minors to in- 
clude those children placed out free by local authorities is, in 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 13 

effect, a proposal to bridge over the gap existing in the present 
laws by reason of the historical development of methods of re- 
lief. The spirit of the present law is that the State Board of 
Charity shall visit and inspect the homes where children are 
placed by local authorities. With the increasing use of the plac- 
ing-out system, a large number of children are now placed out 
free. These do not fall within the letter of the law providing 
for such inspection. Visitation in such cases is as necessary as 
in those in which the local authority pays board. 

The installing of an electric lighting system at Penikese is 
felt by the Board to be a necessity. The use of kerosene lamps 
by persons whose disease tends to dull the sense of touch and to 
diminish the proper use of the hands is extremely dangerous. 
Eor the protection of life, therefore, as well as for great conven- 
ience in the administration of this institution, the Board urges 
that such a plant be installed. Because of the isolated position 
of this hospital and the resulting necessity of being self-contained 
and fitted at all times for a weather siege, it is essential that 
better arrangements should exist for procuring ice for the pa- 
tients. Ice is at present purchased and shipped from ^ew Bed- 
ford at a transportation cost of $2 per ton over the price of the 
goods. It is furthermore highly important that pure ice be 
readily available for hospital purposes, and that supplies, espe- 
cially food, should be purchased in considerable quantities. 
This cannot be done under present conditions without gi'eat ex- 
penditure for ice. An estimated outlay of $1,800 for a refrig- 
erating plant in connection with the electric lighting system 
would supply ample cold storage and sufficient quantities of ice 
for all hospital purposes. The total cost of this plant and the 
electric lighting system combined is estimated not to exceed 
$5,000. Improvement of the water approach to the wharf is 
asked for on the score of safety, convenience, and economy. At 
the present time, because of shallow water, all passengers, as 
well as all supplies, must be lightered ashore in small boats. In 
view of the treacherous winds in the neighborhood of Penikese 
Island this process is frequently dangerous to life. The neces- 
sity of lightering supplies adds heavily to the cost of transpor- 
tation of such items as coal and other staple provisions. 



14 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

The Board's final recommendation would give it the power to 
approve payment of more than $2 a week in summer and $3 a 
week in winter for outdoor relief of unsettled persons where, in 
its discretion, the circumstances of the case are such as to render 
the increased aid advisable. Under the present law the State 
reimburses for the care of a family in distress $2 per week from 
May to September and $3 per week during the other months of 
the year, ^o account is taken of the size or the necessities of 
the family beyond the limit of the aid rendered. Frequently 
the needs of the family are such that the amount paid by the 
State is insufficient to provide the bare necessities of life. The 
Board believes, therefore, that it should be given the power to 
take up the individual case and to approve payment of a larger 
sum where the needs of the family are found to be greatly in 
excess of the amount now allowed, and other proper" help cannot 
be found. 

Legislation of 1911 affecting the Board is summarized as 
follows : — 

Chapter 15Jf-. — Amending the existing law relative to the tak- 
ing of inventories of stock and supplies by the several institutions 
under the supervision of the State Board of Charity, so far as to

[Approved May 21 , 1911. 

Acts of 1911, Chapter 669. 

An Act relative to legal settlements. 
Be it enacted, etc, as follows: 

Section 1. Legal settlements may be acquired in any city or

of twenty-one years, who hereafter resides in any city or town 
within this commonwealth for five consecutive years, shall thereby 
acquire a settlement in such place. 

Second, A married woman shall follow and have the settlement 
of her husband, if he has any within the commonwealth; otherwise 
she shall retain her own at the time of marriage, if she then had 
any. 

Third, Legitimate children shall follow and have the settlement 
of their father, if he has any within the commonwealth; otherwise 
they shall follow and have the settlement of their mother if she 
has any; if the father dies during the minority of his children 
they shall thereafter follow and have the settlement of their 
mother; in the event of the divorce of the parents the minor chil-

Fifth, A person who enlisted and was mustered into the military 
or naval service of the United States, as a part of the quota of a 
city or town in this commonwealth under any call of the presi- 
dent of the United States during the war of the rebellion or who 
was assigned as a part of the quota thereof after having enlisted 
and been mustered into said service, and who served for not less 
than one 3'ear, or who died or became disabled from wounds or 
disease received or contracted while engaged in such service, or 
while a prisoner of the enemy, and his wife or widow and minor 
children shall be deemed thereby to have acquired a settlement in 
such place; and any person who would otherwise be entitled to a 
settlement under this clause, but who was not a part of the quota 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 17 

of any city or town, shall, if lie served as a quota of the common- 
wealth, be deemed to have acquired a settlement in the place 
where he actually resided at the time of his enlistment. But these 
provisions shall not apply to any person who enlisted and received 
a bounty for such enlistment in more than one place, unless the 
second enlistment was made after an honorable discharge from the 
first term of service, nor to any person who has been proved guilty 
of wilful desertion, or who left the service otherwise than by rea- 
son of disability or an honorable discharge. 

Sixth, Upon the division of a city or town, every person having 
a legal settlement therein, but being absent at the time of such 
division, and not having acquired a legal settlement elsewhere, 
shall have his legal settlement in the city or town containing the 
last dwelling place or home which he had in the city or town so 
divided; and if a new city or town, composed of a part of one or 
more other cities or towns, is incorporated, every person legally 
settled in any of the places of which such new city or town is so 
composed, and who actually dwells and has his home within the 
bounds of such new city or town at the time of its incorporation, 
and any person duly qualified as provided in the fifth clause of 
this section, who at the time of his enlistment dwelt and had his 
home within such bounds, shall thereby acquire a legal settlement 
in such new city or town; but no person residing in that part of 
a citv' or town which upon division is incorporated into a new 
city or town, and who then has no legal settlement therein, shall 
acquire any by force of the incorporation only; nor shall such 
incorporation prevent his acquiring a settlement therein within 
the time and by the means by which he would have gained it there 
if no such division had been made. 

Section 2. Xo person shall acquire a settlement, or be in the 
process of acquiring a settlement, while receiving relief as a pauper, 
unless, within two years after the time of receiving such relief, 
he tenders reimbursement of the cost thereof to the common- 
wealth, or to the city or town furnishing the same. 

Sectiox 3. Xo person who actually supports himself and his 
family shall be deemed to be a pauper by reason of the commit- 
ment of his wife, child or other relative to an insane hospital or 
other institution of charity, reform or correction by order of a 
court or magistrate, and of his inability' to maintain the wife, 
child or relative therein. 

Section 4. A person who, after the passage of this act, is absent 
for five consecutive years from the city or tovm. in which he had 
a settlement shall thereby lose his settlement. But the time dur- 
ing which a person shall have been an inmate of any public hos- 
pital, public sanatorium, almshouse, jail, prison or other public 



18 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

institution, within the commonwealth, or of a soldiers' or sailors' 
home whether within or without the commonwealth, shall not be 
counted in computing the time either for acquiring or for losing 
a settlement, except as provided in section two. 

Section 5. All existing settlements shall continue in force 
until changed or defeated by the provisions of this act, and no 
person who has begun to acquire a settlement by the laws iu force 
at and before the time when this act takes effect, in any of the 
ways in which any period of time is prescribed for a residence or 
for the continuance or succession of any other act, shall be pre- 
vented or delayed by the provisions hereof, but he shall acquire 
a settlement by a continuance or succession of the same residence 
or other act, in the same time and manner as if the former laws 
had continued in- force. 

Section 6. Any settlement which was not fully acquired subse- 
quent to the first day of May in the year eighteen hundred and 
sixty is hereby defeated and lost, unless such settlement prevented 
a subsequent acquisition of settlement in the same place; but if 
a settlement acquired by marriage is so defeated, the former settle- 
ment of the wife, if not also so defeated, shall be revived. 

Section 7. Chapter eighty of the Revised Laws is hereby re- 
pealed. [Approved July 13, 1911.

THE STATE INSTITUTIONS. 
The State institutions under the supervision of the Board 
are: the State Infirmary, at Tewksbury; the State Farm, at 
Bridgewater; the Lyman School for Boys, at Westborough; the 
Industrial School for Boys, at Shirley; the State Industrial 
School for Girls, at Lancaster; the Massachusetts Hospital 
School, at Canton; the !N'orth Reading State Sanatorium; the 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 19 

Rutland State Sanatorium: the Lakeville State Sanatorium; 
and the Westfield State Sanatorium. 

The supervisory powers of the Board over these institutions 
extend to the right of investigation and recommendation as to 
any matters relating to the institutions, but the administration 
of each is vested in a separate Board of Trustees. 

The State Infirmary and the State Farm are controlled by 
one Board of Trustees. Its membership is as follows : John B. 
Ti^Tian. Salem. Chairman; Helen R. Smith. Xewton; Payson 
TT. Lyman. Fall River; Leonard Huntress, Lowell; Henrietta 
Gushing. Boston ; Galen L. Stone. Brookline ; John TT. Cough- 
lin. Fall River. 

The Trustees of Hospitals for Consumptives administer the 
four sanatoriBj but have no powers over the tuberculosis wards 
of the State Infirmary. The Board is constituted as follows: 
Arthur T. Cabot. Boston, Cliairman; TTilliam D. McFee, Ha- 
verhill : Albert C. Getchell. Worcester : Arthur Drinkwater. 
Cambridge : Sylvia B. Knowlton. Xewton ; Daniel L. Prender- 
gast, Brookline. 

The three training or industrial schools fall under the control 
of the Trustees of the Massachusetts Training Schools. This is 
a new Board, appointed under the provisions of chapter 566 of 
the Acts of 1911, which abolished the Trustees of Lyman and 
Industrial Schools and the Trustees of the Industrial School 
for Boys. The new Board is as follows : Carl Dreyfus, Boston. 
Chairman; James J. Sheehan. Peabody: David F. Slade, Fall 
River : Mary Josephine Bleakie. Brookline : Matthew Luce, Co- 
hasset; John F. Scully, Arlington; Elizabeth G. Evans, Bos- 
ton ; Charles M. Davenport, Boston : James W. McDonald, 
Marlborough. 

The Massachusetts Hospital School is administered by the 
following Board of Trustees: Edward H. Bradford, Boston, 
Chairman; Leonard W. Ross. Boston, Secretary; Walter C. 
Baylies, Taunton: William F. Fitzgerald, Brookline: Alfred 
S. Pinkerton, Worcester. 

In addition to the ten State institutions which the Board 
supervises, is Penikese Hospital, the Massachusetts hospital for 
the care and treatment of persons afflicted with leprosy. This 



20 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

institution is administered directly by the State Board of Char- 
ity. For the sake of uniformity and comparison, all eleven 
institutions are grouped together in this report. 

!N'UMBERS. 

The total number of persons under care in all these institu- 
tions during the year was 19,473. Of these, 14,853 were males, 
4,620 were females. Of the total number, 9,917 received hos- 
pital treatment; 1,602 were juvenile delinquents; 6,465 were 
adult offenders, mostly chronic drunkards, and 1,766 were in- 
digent persons having no legal settlement and not included in 
the above classifications. Of the hospital cases, 3,370 were suf- 
fering from tuberculosis; 1,725 were insane. It is to be noted 
that in the above, as in all other statements giving total numbers 
under care, the figure stated does not necessarily indicate sep- 
arate individuals, since the same person, appearing more than 
once upon the books of an institution, is counted as a person 
under care each time he comes under care anew. Thus, a run- 
away from the Lyman School, if he be away more than twenty- 
four hours, is counted as a returned runaway, and entered upon 
the record a second time. The total number reported as com- 
ing under care in that institution during 1911 was 801. This 
figure in fact represents but 683 separate individuals.

Five institutions, namely, the State Infirmary, the State In- 
dustrial School for Girls, the Lakeville State Sanatorium, the 
IN'orth Reading State Sanatorium, and the Westfield State Sana- 
torium, showed an excess in daily average attendance over nor- 
mal capacity. Of the remaining six, the Farm and Penikese 
have both increased their normal capacity recently, while the 
Rutland Sanatorium is so little below normal that it may be 
classed as full, especially in view of the fact that its daily at- 
tendance for a considerable period of the year exceeded the 
normal capacity. In no case, except the State Infirmary and 
the State Industrial School for Girls does the excess over normal 
indicate serious overcrowding. At the sanatoria many patients

are cared for in temporary shacks and tents. Such facilities, 
while not rated as part of the normal capacity, are adequate and 
desirable in the treatment of the disease. 

Lyman School, though showing a slight decrease of average 
attendance below normal capacity, is, in fact, full, the daily 
attendance at some seasons creating a problem in housing. The 
same problem, in a more severe form, exists at the Industrial 
School for Girls. With a normal capacity of 267, this school 
has had as many as 302 inmates at one time. Because of the 
difficulty in housing inmates of this class, and, in the case of 
this school, because of the presence of considerable numbers of 
feeble-minded girls, the overcrowding must be met by further 
extension of the plant in the immediate future. Some relief 
is expected should additions be made to the Wrentham State 
School for the Feeble-minded. The following tabulation indi- 
cates the fluctuations of daily attendance above and below the 
normal capacity for each institution.

Cost of Maintexaxce. 

The combined appropriations for maintenance were $1,451,- 
355. The total expenditures for maintenance of the several 
institutions were $1,445,926.11. Of this sum, $495,091.77 
was for salaries, wages, and labor; all other expenses, $950,- 
834.34. For the coming year the several Boards of Trustees 
make the following estimates for maintenance appropriations, 
all of which are approved by this Board. To the tabulation is 
added for better comparison the Board's own estimates for 
maintenance of Penikese Hospital. Estimates for special pur- 
poses will be considered under each of the institutions sepa- 
rately.

24 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 



compaeative view of movement of population and of 

Expenditures. 

The movement of population in the eleven institutions men- 
tioned in the foregoing pages is shown in brief but comparative 
fomi in Table 1 following. Inmates are classified bj sex, while 
the daily average attendance appears in a column adjoining the 
average number of officers and employees. The average num- 
ber of persons employed, shown in this table, will be found to 
vary somewhat from similar data prepared by the several insti- 
tutions concerned. The reason for this variance lies in the fact 
that the figures here tabulated are the result of an exact analysis 
of the pay rolls, reducing all emplojTuent to a basis of days. 

Table 2 following, affords a comparative view of expendi- 
tures at all the institutions, classified as " current " and '^ ex- 
traordinary." Tables 1 and 2 are drawn in accordance with the 
statistical form adopted by the National Conference of Charities 
and Correction May 15, 1906.

cared for, 93 less than in 1910, and 550 less than in 1909. The 
largest daily census was 2,623, the smallest, 1,955. Daily aver- 
age, 2,201. N'ormal capacity of institution, 2,110. Of the 
whole number, 6,206, or 87.75 per cent, were treated as hospi-

(836 of which were cases of phthisis), 7 of diphtheria, 12 of 
typhoid fever, 6 of scarlet fever, 69 of whooping cough, and 
72 of measles. N^ine hundred, or 12.73 per cent, of the total 
were insane. Of the new admissioAs, 2,947, or 59.74 per cent., 
were from Boston. Those native in Massachusetts numbered 
1,148, or 23.26 per cent. Foreign born, 2,964, or 60 per cent., 
representing 44 different countries. One thousand, or 20 per 
cent., were under twenty-one years of age. Of the 627 deaths 
244 were from tuberculosis. 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 29 

Out of an appropriation of $394,000 a total of $393,330.02 
was expended for the maintenance of this institution. Of the 
amount expended, $120,909.79 was for salaries, wages and 
labor; all other expenses, $272,420.23. Weekly per caj^ita cost 
of maintenance computed on expenses less sales and refunds 
from maintenance, $3.42. Total receipts from all sources other 
than the State treasury, $26,076.69. Xet cost of maintenance 
to the Commonwealth, $367,253.33. Ratio of daily average 
number of persons employed to daily average number of in- 
mates, 1 to 7.6. For detailed analysis of receipts and expendi- 
tures, see pp. 63-80. 

The chief improvement during the year has been the addition 
to the men's tuberculosis ward of accommodations for 50 pa- 
tients, raising the capacity of that ward to 200 ; and a corre- 
sponding addition to the women's tuberculosis ward. The new 
nurses' building in process last year has been completed. It 
provides for 40 nurses. Other important additions were an in- 
crease in the power plant and the constructing of 3 new filter 
beds for sewage. The total amount expended during the year 
out of appropriations for special improvements was $22,151.53. 

As sho^TL by increased movement in population year by year, 
this institution grows rapidly and tends to become more com- 
plex. This Board has for years recommended the removal of 
the insane. The State Infirmary, originally the State Alms- 
house, should be preserved as an infirmary for the care and 
treatment of indigent persons who are not chargeable to any 
city or town. The presence of 800 insane requiring special 
treatment complicates the problems of this hospital and tends 
to defeat its proper functions. Removal would necessitate hos- 
pital provision elsewhere and would also withdraw from the 
infirmary its most efficient inmate labor. These practical ob- 
jections should not, however, militate against the principle of 
proper classification now well established in this State. 

Conditions at this institution are further complicated by the 
presence of too many children. The hospital affords proper 
facilities for the care of 100 children, yet the average stay of 
the 400 and more children cared for has been so long, through 
exposure to infection and other causes, as to tax the capacity at 



30 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

all times. Many children there must be, but such excessive 
numbers are more than even a highly efficient staff is able to 
cope with successfully. Many of these children are feeble- 
minded, and would be elsewhere if facilities existed for their 
reception. This Board adds its recommendation, to that of the 
Board of Insanity, that very extensive addition be made to the 
State's facilities for the care and custody of the feeble-minded. 

One hundred and eighty-one births occurred at the institu- 
tion during the year. The Board's committee, which began 
experiments two years ago with the after care of mothers and 
infants discharged from the Infirmary, has shown marked prog- 
ress during the year just passed. Its report follows : — 

Report of Wo^iex's Committee, 

The Women's Committee of the State Board of Charity have met 
fortnightly throughout the year, and for the five months preceding 
Jul}', every week. The Committee have continued their work with 
mothers and infants under more favorable conditions than during 
the previous year. In addition to the half-time of one of the visi- 
tors of the Adult Poor Department, they have had, since February. 
1911, the services of a special visitor, a woman with medical train- 
ing. The Committee have also secured two additional volunteers, 
young college women, one of whom gives to this work three and the 
other two days a week. These volunteers have proved regular and 
efiicient : they have replaced the Adult Poor visitor, who could no 
longer be spared from the other work of the department. Two 
women visitors, one an Italian, and the other a Russian Pole, give 
their services when called upon, either as interpreters or visitors for 
women of their respective races. In dealing with maternity cases, 
many of which present puzzling complications, it is of especial ad- 
vantage to have the help of responsible women who can talk freely 
and confidentially with the mothers. Altogether, the Committee 
feel that they are gradually becoming well enough equipped, so 
that they may hope in time to get an effective grasp of the complex 
problems presented by maternity work. 

The cases of 184 women and 199 children were considered by 
the committee, and disposed of as follows: 50 women and 57 chil- 
dren sent to relatives within the Commonwealth. IT women and 13 
children sent to friends within the Commonwealth, 28 women and 
34 children deported, including 5 women and 5 children discharged 
to the United States Com.missicner of Immigration for deportation, 
14 women and 19 children sent to other States, 12 women with 14 
children placed at service, 11 women with 6 children discharged to 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 31 

private societies, 6 women and 6 children discharged to the Over- 
seers of the Poor in the places of their respective settlements, 5 
women and 5 children sent to Chardon Street Home to secure em- 
ployment, 13 women with 11 children discharged to the custody of 
the Prison Commission in accordance with the law, 11 women com- 
mitted to the Asylum Department of the State Infirmary, 2 women 
returned to the Industrial School for Girls, 1 committed to the 
Westborough State Hospital, 1 woman returned to Wrentham, 1 
woman was placed with her child, who was boarded by the State 
Minor .Wards, 1 woman returned to the Waverley School, and 8 
women absconded, 3 taking their children; 2 others returned for 
their 3 children, 3 women and 12 children died, and 15 children 
were committed to the State Board of Charity. 

The most important improvements made during the year were 
additions to the two consumptive wards, the nurses' home and 
the power plant. The total amount expended from appropria- 
tions for special purposes was $22,151.53. 

The needs of this institution are sufficiently set forth in the 
estimates of its Board of Trustees for special appropriations, 
all of which are approved by this Board. They are as fol- 
lows : — 



Additions and alterations to administration building, 

Constmction of laboratory, 

Construction of building for men employees, 

Construction of piggery, .... 

Construction of slaughterhouse, . 

Additional real estate 



$21,700 00 

20,900 00 

27,775 00 

5,900 00 

5,400 00 

2.300 00 



The present administration building was constructed to meet 
the requirements of this institution as of the year 1892. The 
weekly average census of that year was 991. This number has 
increased until at the present time it is 2.201. As a result, 
there is pressing need of enlarging the administration quarters. 

The need of a laboratory building is gi-eat. A high standard 
of hospital efficiency is difficult to maintain at this complex 
institution without such provision. 

The number of male employees now exceeds the housing ac- 
commodations provided. The need of extension is due to steady 



32

gTOwth of the institution. The same reason applies to the im- 
provements on account of farm, stable, and grounds. Quarters 
that have been outgrown have had to be abandoned and new 
facilities more sanitary in character and adequate for their pur- 
pose must be constructed. 

The request of the trustees for authority to piu'chase real 
estate is approved because it is highly important to this institu- 
tion as a protective measure, and on the further ground that a 
desirable piece of property at the front door of the hospital can 
be secured and utilized at reasonable cost.

During the year, 8,193 persons have been cared for, 727 more 
than in 1910, and 1,137 more than in 1909. Largest daily 
census, 2.787; smallest, 2.526: daily average, 2,660. Xormal

6,465 were prisoners, 903 were paupers, and 825 were insane 
convicts. The total number of commitments was 4,961, of which 
4,272, or 86 per cent., were for drunkenness. Of these 4.961 
persons committed, 1,068, or 22 per cent, were returned for

The total nimiber of persons leaving the institution during 
the year, whether by death, discharge, or release on parole, was 
5.50S. The deaths numbered 144. 

Out of an appropriation of $331,000 a total of $330,999.26 
was expended for the maintenance of this institution. Of the 
amount expended. $95,967.62 was for salaries, wages and labor;

pp. 63-80. 

Xo appropriation for special improvements was granted in 
1911. The years improvements, therefore, have been the com- 
pletion of works begun before the year opened. The more im- 
portant of these were a considerable addition to the men's prison 
qtiarters and a smaller extension of the women's prison btiilding. 
The asyltim accommodations have also been increased and a 
storehouse built into the prison wall. The total expended out* of 
appropriations for special purposes was 852.492.07. 

The productive area of the farm gradually increases. Out of 



34 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

a total holding of 1,200 acres, about half are now under tillage. 
Willing co-operation of the State agricultural authorities has 
resulted in more accurate analysis of soils for crop rotation and 
the composition of those manures most applicable. Progress in 
this quarter directly furthers the wholesome outdoor labor policy 
of the institution. 

The two more important needs, chapel extension and safer 
water supply, are sufficiently explained in the following esti- 
mates of the trustees, both of which, together with plans, are 
approved by this Board. 

Water supply, $7,000 00 

Pumping plant, 2,500 00 

Deep well explorations, . . . . . . . 2,000 00 

Chapel, 12,000 00 

There is immediate need of a large increase in filtration. The 
present area should be doubled, and the pumping power for both 
low and high pressure service should be augmented. The supply 
of water for this institution is drawn from the Taunton River. 
It is highly desirable that purer water should be used if it can 
be found. The Trustees recommend, and this Board agrees, 
that borings should be made to ascertain the presence of a sub- 
terranean water supply. The additions to the filtration and 
pumping facilities are urgent inasmuch as there is immediate 
danger of contamination. 

The chapel has been long since outgrown, insomuch that the 
facilities at the present time are equal to about half the demand. 
The Trustees estimate that they can construct a chapel at this 
institution at $1.25 per square foot. 



THE STATE TRAINING SCHOOLS. 

Lyman School for Boys at Westborough, the Industrial School 
for Boys at Shirley, and the State Industrial School for Girls at 
Lancaster are the three industrial schools provided by the State 
for juvenile delinquents. They are this year, for the first time, 
brought under a single Board of Trustees and styled the State 
Training Schools. Boys under fifteen years of age are com- 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 35 

mitted to Lyman School and under eighteen years of age to 
the Industrial School at Shirley; girls under seventeen go to 
the School at Lancaster. All commitments remain under the 
control of the Trustees during minority. For greater efficiency 
in administration, L^-man School cares for boys under fifteen, 
while all over that age are found at Shirley. 

The total number of persons under care in these three institu- 
tions during the year was 1602. Of these, 801 were boys under 
fifteen, held at Lyman School, 270 were boys over fifteen at 
Shirley, and 531 were girls cared for at Lancaster. The number 
entering during the year, including court commitments, was 926. 

In the three Schools there were, at the beginning of the year, 
676 inmates, namely, 429 boys and 247 girls. Xine hundred 
twenty-six were received during the year, and 809 went out 
either by discharge or upon parole, leaving 793 on l^ovember 30, 
1911, namely, 496 boys and 297 girls. 

Two of the more important steps made during the year in the 
study of the juvenile delinquent at these Schools were the exten- 
sion of a more complete system of tracing histories and the in- 
troduction of the Binet test for mentality. Though the results 
of this test can be taken for no more than an indication, the 
superintendents are by its use enabled to classify with greater 
accuracy for training and care. 

The combined appropriations for the maintenance of the 
three Schools totaled $229,450. Of this amount, $229,442.09 
was expended. Subtracting all receipts from sources other 
than the State treasury, the net cost of maintenance to the 
Commonwealth was $227,690.22. Details of administration 
and cost are considered under each School separately.

67 less than in 1909. The largest daily census was 342, the 
smallest, 299 ; daily average, 324.3. Normal capacity of institu- 
tion, 350. The year closed with 5 more boys than at the be- 
ginning. 

The number entering during the year, including court com- 
mitments, was 471. The list of causes was as follows : abscond- 
ers returned, 61 ; assault, 3 ; breaking and entering, 29 ; com- 
mitted a second time, 1 ; delinquent child, 53 ; disturbing the 
peace, 1 ; false fire alarm, 2 ; larceny, 69 ; malicious mischief, 
1 ; returned from place or parole, 191 ; setting fires, 5 ; stubborn- 
ness, 25 ; transferred from other institutions, not penal, 21 ; 
transferred from the State Board of Charity, 6 ; vagrancy, 3. 

Early in the year Willow Park cottage was assigned to the use 
of the boys who form the disciplinary squad. Here they are 
housed and kept apart from the remainder of the School and are 
given harder Avork. They are denied amusements, and their fare 
is restricted to an abundance of plain but wholesome food. 
When not at work they are kept active by military drill and 
calisthenics. The length of detention at the disciplinary cottage 
is dependent upon the gravity of the offence, and in each case 
is for a minimum term, at the expiration of which the boy is 
released if his conduct has been satisfactory. No credits are 
allowed during his stay in this cottage. In certain cases of ex- 
treme misconduct corporal punishment is inflicted, but in every 
instance by direction of the Superintendent or his deputy and 
under his immediate oversight. Constant supervision by night 
as well as day is exercised by the officers of this cottage. The 
number of corporal punishments has decreased to about one- 
third of those formerly administered, and there have been no 
boys placed in solitary detention since the establishment of the 
disciplinary squad last year. 

There has been a reduction in the number of boys per house 
during the year, due to the opening of the new double cottage. 
This is most gi-atifying even though it necessarily entails a 
larger expenditure of money and a consequent higher per capita 
cost. 

The element of play so necessary to the growing boy has re- 
ceived full recognition. As a result, the boys have an excellent 
swimming pool and gymnasium in the basement of the school 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 37 

building. Each cottage has its baseball, football, and basket ball 
teams and inter-cottage games are frequent. There is also a 
school team that contests with visiting teams from near-bv towns, 
and at times individual cottage teams have played against out- 
siders. Entertainments are given at intervals bv the boys, and 
others are provided from the income of the Lyman fund. A 
pageant was enacted by the pupils at the close of the school year 
that not only greatly interested the boys, but was also a decided 
credit to them and to the teachers. 

The Binet test for mentality was introduced during the year, 
and is found to be very serviceable in discovering whether the 
boy is above or below the standard of mentality for his age and 
in determining the grade in school to which he should be as- 
signed. It is interesting and extremely significant to note that 
out of 1-iS boys tested, 3 were precocious and 10 normal in men- 
tality, and the rest indicated from one to eight years' backward- 
ness. This would seem to sustain the theory that juvenile delin- 
quency is largely the manifestation of a mental condition due to 
heredity and environment. 

These tests will be made again when the boys are ready to 
leave the School, and will furnish further valuable information 
as a basis for a study of juvenile delinquency. 

The medical examination is given each boy upon his entrance, 
and any physical defects are carefully not^d and treatment pre- 
scribed and followed. Measurements of the body are made as 
are also tests of muscular strength. As complete a history of 
the boy's antecedents as can be obtained and a report upon his 
home are made and kept permanently as aids to a study of the 
boy and his needs. 

The religious interests of the boys are cared for and instruc- 
tion provided for them by clergymen and others of various de-. 
nominations. 

During the year the plan of assembling all the boys and 
officers four times during the day has been inaugurated. In 
this way all pass before the eyes of the Superintendent fre- 
quently, and the boys and masters have ample opportunity to 
confer with him and to obtain his advice or instruction. 

Out of an appropriation of $107,800 a total of $107,791.96 
was expended for the maintenance of this institution. Of the 



38 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

amount expended, $42,225.33 was for salaries, wages and labor; 
all other expenses, $65,566.63. Weekly per capita cost of 
maintenance computed on expenses less sales and refunds from 
maintenance, $6.34. Total receipts from aU sources other than 
the State treasury, $676.52. Net cost of maintenance to the 
Commonwealth, $107,115.44. Ratio of daily average number 
of persons employed to daily average number of inmates, 1 to 
4.4. For detailed analysis of receipts and expenditures, see 
pp. 63-80. 

The important special improvements have been the construc- 
tion of coal pockets and the installation of fire apparatus, con- 
sisting of a chemical engine, a hose and ladder truck, and a 
system of fire signals. The total expenditure out of appropria- 
tions for special purposes was $10,146.27. 

The special improvements needed at this institution are set 
out in the following estimates which are approved by this 
Board : — 



1. Extension of heating plant to Oak cottage and new boiler 

for Bowlder cottage $1,946 00 

2. A siding on the Boston & Albany Railroad near the Milk 

Street bridge 1,200 00 

3. Increased refrigeration 1,000 00 

4. Hennery and piggeiy 800 00 



$4,946 00 



Oak cottage and Bowlder cottage are not on the subway. 
They have individual boilers that have served their period of 
usefulness. The State inspector does not want them used an- 
other year. Oak cottage is sufficiently near to the central heat- 
ing plant to connect very advantageously with the main heating 
plant. Bowlder is too far removed and is at a disadvantageous 
grade. It costs about $520 to heat one of these cottages with an 
individual boiler. As nearly as can be ascertained, the cost 
when connected with the main heating plant is about one-half 
that sum. Repairs would cost less and service would be more 
efficient. In addition it would put the heating system all under 
one head. 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 39 

A siding near the Milk Street bridge on the Boston & AJbany 
Railroad is needed very much. It will save one-half of the dis- 
tance in hauling 1.500 to 2,000 tons of coal each year. It will 
also save betv.-een $300 and S400 each year in demurrage.

The year closed with 62 more boys than at the beginning.

The sudden increase in the number of inmates at this school 
is due to the fact that it is a new institution, opened July 31, 



40 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

1909, and to the further fact that two new cottages have been 
completed and the old building reconstructed. These improve- 
ments have increased the capacity from 100 at the beginning of 
the year to 180 at its close. 

Other improvements were the partial construction of the new 
piggery, the relocation of a cottage on the farm, and a beginning 
made on the shop building. All the furniture and interior finish 
for the new cottages has been made by the boys under direction. 
Much grading of the school grounds has been completed and 
over 1,000 feet of water and drain pipe laid. N'umerous repairs 
to old buildings and equipment have been made. The total ex- 
penditure out of appropriations for special purposes was $38,- 
234.66. 

Through their activities the boys are receiving practical train- 
ing in the various trades, and have had the satisfaction of seeing 
the work of their hands take definite shape and become part of 
the visible structure or equipment of the School. This is ^n 
incentive to the boy's interest in his work. It is more beneficial 
and practical than mere shop work, which results in the produc- 
tion of articles that are useful, but whose utility is not usually 
visualized by the boy. 

This method can be followed while the School is growing as 
it promises to do, judging by the frequency of commitments. 
Later it will be necessary to rely to a greater extent on shop 
work, the output of which can be used in part in the upkeep of 
the School. Doubtless plans will be formulated later to stimu- 
late the interest of the boy in his tasks and compensate in some 
degree for the loss he will sustain through his inability to see 
his handiwork put to practical use. 

But at present all are employed at useful occupations and 
have the satisfaction of seeing the results practically applied. 
For example, in addition to the construction and repairs already 
mentioned, the boys have painted and decorated the new cot- 
tages, have prepared the reinforcing steel for the concrete in the 
shop building and piggery, have built a brick addition to the 
creamery, made concrete floors and foundations, and built new 
chimneys. 

Under the direction of a chef the boys assigned to this depart- 
ment have done all the cooking and baking for the School, and 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 41 

others have done all the mending and made much of the cloth- 
ing, directed by a competent tailor. 

The farm work under the foreman has been made attractive 
to the boys by specializing. Too often farm v^ork is merely 
drudgery, and a boy loses interest by following a round of duties 
which grow irksome because of their generally laborious nature 
and the denial of opportunity to learn to do well the thing he 
likes. So the boys are given an opportunity to choose some 
branch of farm work and devote themselves exclusively to that. 
Once a boy has made his choice, whether of dairy work, garden- 
ing, or poultry, he must abide by his choice and take a thorough 
course in one of these branches. There are good opportunities 
in all these specialties, and there is no reason why a reliable boy 
should not make good in any of them when he is ready to go out 
from the School. 

JSTaturally there is a certain percentage of boys who have not 
the ability to specialize in any occupation, and these must be the 
general farm hands and laborers who will not have the oppor- 
tunities of the others, but who still can be made self-supporting 
if the School succeeds in building up their characters. 

All the boys are given academic instruction for various daily 
periods. There are 24 in the 1st high school grade who attend 
classes four hours a week, 118 in the lower grades who attend 
ten hours weekly. Among the latter are 6 illiterates. ^Nineteen 
are recent commitments and had not been classified when this 
report was compiled. 

The schedule is four hours of school attendance and forty 
hours of industrial work weekly for high school boys, and for 
the lower grades ten hours of school and thirty-four hours of 
work in the same period. 

While there is no systematic provision for play every oppor- 
tunity for wholesome sport is embraced, and this necessary fea- 
ture is encouraged by the formation of teams for baseball and 
football in their season and an abundance of coasting and skat- 
ing in the winter. 

While there is some sickness incident to radical change in 
physical environment following admission to the School, and a 
normal number of accidents incident to work and play, the 
health conditions generally remain excellent. 



42 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

The needs of the School are embodied in the following esti- 
mates of the Trustees, all of which, with plans and specifications^ 
are approved by this Board : — 

1. Powers and lighting plant, and equipment for the same

The first item is a part of the request for power and lighting 
plant and shop building of last year, the shop building part of 
which was granted. 

Item two is for partly equipping for trade teaching the shop 
building which is now under construction. 

The need of an additional cottage to increase capacity results 
from natural growth of the School.

Early in the year a plan for the care of new girls was adopted. 
They are now placed in Richardson cottage, known as the " re- 
ceiving cottage," where they spend, on an average, the first two 
months of their commitment. Here the child is studied and an 
effort is made to correct her more apparent faults. She is given 
a greater degree of individual attention, resulting in more accu- 
rate classification when she is ready to be assigned to one of the 
other cottages. She is taught sewing by making models which, 
when successfully completed, are gathered together in a book 
and given her to be kept as her property to stimulate her pride in 
her own accomplishments. 

As the girls in the receiving cottage do not participate in 
many of the privileges extended to those in the other cottages, 
they are stimulated to concentration and industry by a desire to 
hasten their transfer. The Superintendent has adopted the plan 
of spending Sunday evenings at this cottage, reading and talk- 
ing to the girls and becoming intimately acquainted vrith their 
personal attributes and needs. 

The quality of the new commitments, mentally and physically, 
is about the same as formerly. Most of them require attention 
to build them up in all of these directions. A study is being 
made of each of them which follows back to their antecedents 
and reveals the truth that most owe their present condition to 
circumstances beyond their control. The results of the Binet 
tests given to 107 girls show that 103 of the number are back- 
ward from one to eight years in the mentality common to chil- 
dren of their age. 

There is the usual percentage of feeble-minded on the rolls 



44 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

and a considerable number of the class that has come to be 
known as the ^' defective delinquent/' who are mentally too 
bright to be proper candidates for an institution for the feeble- 
minded, but morally incapable of caring for themselves. For 
their o^vn welfare and for the sake of the community, they need 
permanent custodial care. Up to the present there has been no 
provision made for this class, and they must be discharged from 
the School at twenty-one, with consequences that are almost 
inevitably disastrous to themselves and the community at large. 

The theory of training at the School is that the girls are des- 
tined to become housewives. The emphasis is therefore put upon 
the domestic arts, it being required that every girl must learn to 
keep house competently as far as her abilities warrant. She is 
taught to wash, iron, mend, sew, make clothing, to cook and 
serve food. 

Those who are apt and whose conduct is good can complete 
the course in a year and a half and are then ready for placing, 
but unfortunately many of these are not able to persevere when 
no longer under the control and regular routine of the School. 
Others are so little able to perform their tasks even under direc- 
tion that their stay at the School is necessarily prolonged. 

Two cottages out of ten are filled with girls of the feeble- 
minded class, and one is occupied by girls whose syphilitic con- 
dition compels their segregation. The other cottages are classi- 
fied according to conduct and have varying degrees of privileges. 
Honor cottage, containing the best behaved girls, has been 
granted self-government, an experiment which has proved very 
successful. 

Bolton cottage, which is remote from the School proper, is 
for the girls who are so refractory that their presence menaces 
the discipline of the School. Here are also sent the girls who 
have been returned for such serious misconduct as to make 
it unwise to permit them to associate with the others. The dis- 
cipline at this cottage is strict and privileges are restricted. It 
is the last resort before transference to the women's reforma- 
tory at Sherborn. 

Entertainments have been arranged for the School, but there 
is need of means to make them more frequent. The religious 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 45 

interests of the girls have been carefully provided for as here- 
tofore. 

'No improvements of note have been completed during the 
year. The total expended from appropriations for special 
purposes was $155.83. The current needs are shown in the 
following estimates of the Trustees, all of which, together 
with plans and specifications, are approved by this Board : — 

1. Central school building and furnishings for same . . $34,500 00 

2. Wiring the grounds and buildings, and fixtures for elec- 

tric lighting system 9,228 00 

3. General repairs and improvements, including replacing, 

plumbing, extending fire escapes, painting, and fin- 
ishing off additional rooms in the third stories of 
Bolton, Putnam, and Pine cottages .... 6,742 00 

4. Pumping apparatus and building for same, for connect- 

ing water supply at Bolton 

5. Barn and shed at Bolton 

6. Steam-heating system at Bolton cottage .... 

7. Sidewalks on the grounds 

$56,236 00 

The schooling under the present system is ungraded, the girls 
in each cottage, of varying ages and degrees of intelligence, 
being taught in that cottage. The proposed building will not 
only allow the classes to be graded, and together in one building, 
where supervision can be much more complete, instead of in 
nine different buildings as at present, but will also make the 
rooms at present used available for other much-needed purposes. 
It will also provide a gymnasium. 

This institution is now lighted entirely by kerosene lamps. 
The above estimate would provide for an electric lighting system 
throughout, current to be procured locally. 

The Bolton cottage heating system, now hot air, must be re- 
placed, and new pumping apparatus and a pump house provided 
for pumping the water at this department of the school. The 
stock barn is in very poor condition and in danger of falling 
down. It should be replaced.

John E. Fish, M.D., Superintendent. 

Total valuation of plant, real and personal, $263,468.20. 
Value per unit of capacity, $1,053.87+. 

Provides care and schooling for crippled and deformed chil- 
dren. During the year 263 separate individuals have been under 
care. This total is 32 more than in 1910, and 88 more than in 
1909. The largest daily census was 228, the smallest, 184; 
daily average, 214.77. Normal capacity of institution, 250. 
New admissions numbered 67. The year closed with 15 more 
children than at the beginning. Average age of children ad- 
mitted, eight years and one month. 

There were 35 discharged, of whom 20 were boys and 15 
girls. Six of these had recovered, 5 were so much improved 
that they no longer required special care or education as crip- 
ples, 13 were transferred to institutions for care of feeble- 
minded or epileptic, or returned to family care as cases not sus- 
ceptible to improvenient at the School, 6 were taken from the 
School against advice. Five children died. 

The policy of allowing children to visit their relatives has 
been continued, and in spite of the great risk of introducing 
contagious or infectious diseases there have been no serious ill 
results. The general good health of the children has been 
maintained. 

During the year several boys and girls have gone into employ- 
ment for which they were trained at the School. Two girls 
have taken service in small families, one boy has gone to work 
as a plumber's helper, one to a laundry, another to the shipping 
room in a shoe factory. A boy of nineteen who has been in the 
School for more than three years, during which time he secured 
a license as fireman, is now employed in that capacity in a plant 
where he is receiving good pay and has opportunity for advance- 
ment. This boy is a permanent cripple. Practically all of 
these children would have become permanent public charges if 
they were denied the physical and educational advantages af- 
forded by the School. 

In 1912 the first class will graduate from the academic depart- 
ment of the School comparable to the 8th or 9th grades in to^vn 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 47 

and citj schools. Owing to the fact that the classes are small 
and are in session practically throughout the year, it is found 
that children who are discharged are able to resume their places 
in the public schools in the grades attained by their classmates 
with whom they were associated when removed to the School. 
This fact is worthy of note when it is stated that the daily period 
of class work averages about one and one-half hours. 

After gTaduation from the grades, the amount of industrial 
training which the children have previously been receiving is 
increased. The quantity and kind of vocational training must 
necessarily be adapted to individual need and capacity, and in 
order that these children may compete with their normal fellows 
without loss of self-respect, their industrial education must be 
intensified and concentrated. While it is hoped and expected 
that a certain number may be restored to physical normality, a 
very large proportion will be permanently crippled, and these 
must be trained for such employment as their condition will per- 
mit. ]^aturally the occupations for men and women who are 
without one or both arms or legs are necessarily limited, and 
only by such individual training, along lines practical for these 
so handicapped, can some degree of self-support be ensured for 
them. 

"Now that the School is beginning to send out children who 
have reached the limit of the School's resources, this matter of 
finding employment has become of immense importance if the 
benefits derived from the training at Canton are to be turned to 
practical account. In this matter, as in all matters involving 
social betterment, it is desirable to secure the interest of the 
public in these children, that their needs and capacity may be 
generally known and avenues of employment opened to them. It 
is hoped that this suggestion may bear fruit in the formation of 
committees in various communities which, by establishing con- 
tact between the School and different industries, will help to 
solve this new problem by furnishing opportunities for the grad- 
uate in his own home. 

A small fund has been started which it is hoped will be in- 
creased for the purpose of caring for graduates who are awaiting 
employment or who fall ill. The Trustees have asked authority 
from the Legislature to administer this fund and anv additions. 



48 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

Last year the Legislature appropriated $20,000 for an assem- 
bly building, which sum was found to be too small, and an addi- 
tional amount of $10,000 will be asked for this purpose. The 
reasons for this building still exist and the necessity is even more 
urgent. A grant of $6,000 was made for a farm building, and 
this has been constructed during the year by the employees. The 
importance of a cow barn is still urged by the Trustees, but they 
have deferred the request until later. Two outdoor schoolrooms 
have been built, and repairs have been more extensive this year, 
as is to be expected in a plant made up largely of wooden 
buildings. 

Despite the unfavorable conditions as to space and conven- 
ience, religious exercises have been held regularly and many en- 
tertainments have been given, some furnished by the children 
and others generously contributed by friends. 

Play at the School is one of the important functions, and prac- 
tically all forms of outdoor sports have been pro^dded. The 
star feature of athletics is the baseball team, which won 
two-thirds of all contests and figured the percentage as a part 
of their school work. The band is a new institution, which 
creates great interest among the boys and furnishes entertain- 
ment for all. 

Out of an appropriation of $62,600 a total of $61,886.76 was 
expended for the maintenance of this institution. Of the amount 
expended, $25,630.02 was for salaries, wages and labor; all 
other expenses, $36,256.74. Weekly per capita cost of mainte- 
nance computed on expenses less sales and refunds from mainte- 
nance, $5.51. Total receipts from all sources other than the 
State treasury, $36,475.37. i^et cost of maintenance to the 
Commonwealth, $25,411.39. Ratio of daily average number of 
persons employed to daily average number of inmates, 1 to 3.6. 
For detailed analysis of receipts and expenditures, see pp. 
63-80. 

The chief improvements were the reclaiming of wood land 
for tillage, the laying of walks, and the building of the barn,

THE TUBERCULOSIS SANATORIA. 

Massachusetts maintains five hospitals for the care and treat- 
ment of persons suffering from pulmonary tuberculosis, namely, 
the Rutland, the Lakeville, the North Reading, and the West- 
field State Sanatoria, and the tuberculosis wards at the State 
Infirmary. 

During the year these institutions treated 3,170 cases. At 
each hospital the working capacity has been swelled by the use 
of tents and temporary shacks. Yet in spite of these efforts 
there are several hundred persons awaiting admittance. Of this 
nimiber, 2,163 were discharged as follows: disease arrested, 426; 
condition improved, 744; condition not improved, 389; non- 
tuberculous, 11 ; died, 459 ; unclassified because of shortness of 
stay, 134. 

The establishment and maintenance of these State sanatoria 
is a part of the educational policy of the State. Consumption 
thrives on bad housing and poor home sanitation. Great as is 
the importance of removing sources of infection, the point of 
attack lies not so much in isolation and medical care of those 
who are now victims, as in the forestalling of infection by teach- 
ing the people the dangers of this disease and the best methods 
of combating it at home. To this end hospitals have been estab- 
lished where afflicted persons are given treatment and trained in 
methods of fighting infection. The theory that these patients 
upon discharge would return to their homes and act as medical 
missionaries in fighting the plague is now an established fact. 

A few hospitals maintained by the Commonwealth cannot 
hope to relieve all the consumptives in the State. Its purpose is 
educational rather than directly remedial, yet many persons have 
in fact been relieved, and many sources of infection have been 
stayed. The second stage in this educational process lies in the 
co-operation of State and local authorities with private agencies 
and with each other, to pursue tuberculosis into the bad air and 
damp cellars and force upon the mind of the individual the posi- 
tive need of prevention. 

A long step in this direction was taken last year when the 
State declared by statute its willingness to help the cities and 
towns ferret out the sick and care for them locallv. State en-

couragement in the establishment of local public hospitals for 
tubercular cases has already resulted in great activity on the 
part of the cities and towns. Private agencies, too, show a 
quickened tendency toward more effective organization. Anti- 
tuberculosis and district nursing associations are seeking in- 
corporation in greater numbers than ever before. The inspir- 
ing of a determination in the public mind to eradicate this 
dangerous disease is an undertaking toward which the State 
institutions have contributed much. 

This Board notes a commendable tendency toward after care 
of discharged patients. Co-operation with local authorities and 
private agencies is thus likely to extend the usefulness of the 
sanatorium indefinitely. More complete understanding of case 
history in conjunction with more extensive pathological research 
is urged as a course sure to further greatly the ends for which 
our sanatoria were established. 

Separate report is not made upon the tuberculosis department 
of the State Infirmary. It is considered under the general head- 
ing of the State Infirmary at pp. 28-32 ante. The four sepa- 
rate sanatoria follow : —

Provides hospital care and treatment for persons afflicted with 
pulmonary tuberculosis. 

During the year, 881 cases have been under care. This total 
is 227 less than in 1910, and 249 less than in 1909. Of the 
whole number, 350 were in residence at the beginning of the 
year. The remaining 531 were admitted under the following 
classification, based upon the ascertained progress of the disease : 
incipient, 124, or 23.35 per cent. ; moderately advanced, 261, or 
49.15 per cent. ; far advanced, 126, or 23.74 per cent. ; not 
classified, 20, or 3.76 per cent. Males numbered 254, females, 
277. The discharges numbered 542, namely, 255 males and 287 
females, classified according to condition as follows : disease ar- 
rested, 252, or 46.49 per cent. ; improved. 148. or 27.30 per

cent. ; not considered, 41, or 7.56 per cent. Average duration of 
stay of patients, six months, thirteen days. The number of bed 
cases has increased nearly 50 per cent, during the year. 

Out of an appropriation of $184,000 a total of $178,781.20 
was expended for the maintenance of this institution. Of the 
amount expended, $63,644.37 was for salaries, wages and labor; 
all other expenses, $115,136.83. Weekly per capita cost of 
maintenance computed on expenses less sales and refunds from 
maintenance, $9.71. Total receipts from all sources other than 
the State treasury, $48,232.69. Xet cost of maintenance to the 
Commonwealth, $130,548.51. Ratio of daily average number 
of persons employed to daily average number of inmates, 1 to 
1.6. For detailed analysis of receipts and expenditures, see 
pp. 63-80. 

Several minor improvements have been made at this plant. 
Chief among these are a veranda on the Infirmary building, and 
duplicate electrical machinery in the power plant. The total 
expended out of appropriations for special purposes was 
$2,774.45. The Trustees offer the following estimates for ap- 
propriations for special purposes, all of which are approved by 
this Board : — 

1. Horse barn 

2. Xew hydrant near nurses' home and fire extinguisher 

3. Rebuilding road through sanatorium grounds 

4. Addition to carpenter shop 

5. Wood and iron working machinery 



The first item is intended to replace an old bam now badly 
out of repair, and seeks to add accommodations which the growth 
of this plant renders necessary. 

The road which the third item seeks to rebuild is impassable 
in bad weather. All institution supplies must be hauled over 
this thoroughfare.

This hospital is experimenting with a plan for graduated 
exercise to supplement the usual rest treatment in the open air. 
The benefits of such treatment are obvious, and thus far the plan 
seems practicable. 

Improvements in water supply and sewage disposal have been 
completed and a large poultry house constructed. The recreation 
and employment building, for which an appropriation was 
granted during the year, is not yet under construction. The

During the year, 480 cases have been under care. Of this 
number. 157 were in residence at the beginning of the year. 
The remaining 323 were admitted under the following classifi-

but of an appropriation of $80,000 a total of $79,999.89 was 
expended for the maintenance of this institution. Of the amount

Among the cases admitted, 12 were children under fourteen 
years of age, and 49 ranged between fourteen and twenty years 
of age. This situation has created a need for segregation. An 
effort has also been made to provide schooling. 

The more important improvements were the enlargement of 
the diet kitchen and the extension of locker facilities. The 
total expended from appropriations for special purposes was 
$3,258.71. 

This Board approves estimates for special improvements as 
follows : — 

1. Purchase of adjacent farm known as the Pignatare prop- 

erty, consisting of 40 acres of land and buildings . $3,500 00 

2. Construction of a cow stable 2,000 00 

3. Purchase of cows 1,500 00 



$7,000 00 



The purchase of land is approved as a protection to the water 
supply which is now contaminated from sources located on the 
Pignatare farm. 

The land about this sanatorium is sufficient to support a herd, 
thus making an independent milk supply feasible. The present 
difficulties attending the collection of milk from neighboring 
producers render such independent control highly advisable.

PENIKESE HOSPITAL, PENIKESE ISLAND. 
Fraxk H. Parker, M.D., Superintendent. 

This institution is administered directly by the Board. 
Total valuation of plant, real and personal, $81,877.64. The 
plant is arranged partly upon the cottage plan and consists of 
four detached cottages for patients, a main hospital, farm build- 
ings and an administration house. 

On December 1, 1910, there were 11 patients. Two have 
been admitted during the year, while none have been discharged, 
thus leaving 13 on I^'ovember 30, 1911. The appropriation for 
1911 for maintenance was $11,285. The expenditures amounted 
to $11,976.91, creating a deficit of $691.91. Of the amount 
expended, $4,074.56 was for salaries, wages and labor; all other 
expenses, $7,902.35. Weekly per capita cost of maintenance 
computed on expenses less sales and refunds from maintenance, 
$18,287. Total receipts from all sources other than the State 
treasury, not any. ]^et cost of maintenance to the Common- 
wealth, $11,976.91. Ratio of daily average number of persons 
employed to daily average number of inmates, 1 to 2.3. For 
detailed analysis of receipts and expenditures, see pp. 63-80. 
The Board estimates that $11,569 will be necessary for the cur- 
rent year. 

The condition of the patients shows little change other than 
the steady progress of the disease, ^o serious complications 
have appeared, and the general health has been well sustained. 
The problem of providing entertainment or other activities of 
interest to the inmates has not thus far been great. The care of 
individual gardens, interest in carpentry, reading in individual 
libraries, billiards and croquet have all been used to while away 
time and keep the mind active. In general, the patients find 
enough to occupy themselves. Living in separate cottages tends 
to increase individual freedom and to sustain interest in these 
pursuits. 

One important improvement has been effected during the year. 
The problem of water supply, so urgent in 1910, has been met 
with apparent success. In the fall of that year fresh water had 
to be transported 14 miles by sea from IN'ew Bedford. Because 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 57 

of the lack of facilities for landing cargoes, this had to be brought 
in small quantities at great expense. A well was driven to a 
depth of 1-iO feet, with brackish water as a result. Fortunately, 
the State was at no expense in this experiment. The second 
attempt, made in August, 1911, was the digging of three large 
wells at a total cost thus far of $1,862.0-1. These wells are filled 
with clear, pure water, and it is hoped that this source of sup- 
ply will be sufficient for some time to come. 

The Legislature of 1911 appropriated $2,000 for additional 
water supply and $1,350 for furnishing the new hospital build- 
ing. The furnishings for the new hospital building are being 
installed. When these are completed the normal capacity of the 
institution will be increased to 19. The total expended from 
appropriations for special purposes was $3,530.51. 

The urgent needs of the institution have been noted in the 
Board's report in previous years. The two imperative needs 
are for a safer system of lighting and some reasonably safe 
approach to the island. On the first of these, the Board recom- 
mends an electric lighting system. The patients at this hospital 
are afflicted with a disease, a frequent phase of which is the 
dulling of the sense of touch. The hands tend to become numb 
and greatly impaired in usefulness. This fact renders the use 
of oil lamps extra hazardous. The Board feels, as it has for a 
long time felt, that the Commonwealth is in duty bound to pro- 
vide these involuntary patients with a reasonably safe system of 
lighting. 

As a means of economy and greater efficiency in the adminis- 
tration of the hospital, the Board suggests a relatively small 
addition to this lighting plant necessary for the installing of a 
refrigerating plant. The total expense of this combined im- 
provement is estimated not to exceed $5,000. 

For years the Board has been asking for safer and more con- 
venient means of approach to the island. We now have a wharf, 
which, except that it is without a breakwater, is adequate, but 
there is not sufficient water to float even a small vessel except at 
high tide, and then for but a very short time. Penikese Island 
lies in troubled seas, where passage to and fro is often difficult. 
All passengers must be put ashore in small boats, a process which 



58 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

in bad weather is hazardous. Aside from the question of per- 
sonal safety, the necessity of transporting supplies, especially 
such articles as coal, grain, lumber, etc., in small quantities, 
greatly increases the expense of maintaining the institution. 
Two dollars a ton freight on coal from l^ew Bedford to Peni- 
kese, when added to the original purchase price, results in too 
great an increase in cost of maintenance to be considered if, by 
reasonable means, the freight charges can be reduced. To face 
this question of safety and of economy, the Board recommends 
the dredging of a short channel. In 1909 (see Annual Report 
of that year, page 101) the Board reported, as a result of an 
investigation and survey made in pursuance of chapter 93, Re- 
solves of 1909, that the dredging of a channel about 650 feet 
long from the outer end of the wharf southeasterly to deep 
water, 150 feet wide and 12 feet deep at mean low water, and 
the excavating of a berth, 100 feet wide and 12 feet deep, at 
mean low water on both sides of the wharf for a distance of 
about 175 feet from the outer end, would cost in the neighbor- 
hood of $15,000. The expense would undoubtedly be greater at 
the present time, but in view of the fact that so long as we have 
leprosy in Massachusetts, public opinion will in all probability 
compel patients afflicted with this disease to be cared for on 
Penikese, the Board feels that the Commonwealth should look 
at least a decade ahead and provide this reasonable approach to 
the institution. The cost is estimated at $16,000. 

When the question of caring for persons afflicted with leprosy 
was first raised in Massachusetts, this Board believed that all 
such cases should be cared for on the mainland, and after the 
manner of other contagious diseases. With the increase of 
medical knowledge, the Board is reinforced in its opinion that 
patients should not be isolated at such a remote distance from 
friends and at such enormous expense to the State. 

As one means of keeping pace with scientific knowledge of 
the diagnosis and treatment of this disease, the Board has 
selected a voluntary advisory medical committee for Penikese 
Hospital consisting of the follovdng persons : Charles J. White, 
M.D., Chairman, Boston; Harvey P. Towle, M.D., Boston; 
Clara P. Fitzgerald, M.D., Secretary, Worcester; Joseph W. 
Proctor, M.D., Boston: Simeon B. Wolbach, M.D., Boston.

FIXAXCIAL SUPERVISION. 

The Board in its financial supervision of the State charitable 
institutions, inspects each institution through paid officers once 
each month, and through its own committees and members at 
frequent intervals. 

Careful analyses have been made each month of all articles 
of food, coal, hay and grain purchased, and a tabulated state- 
ment of results sent to each institution. In addition, compara- 
tive tables of coal and flour purchased for the fiscal year ending 
Xovember 30. 1911, have been prepared. 

A uniform system for an inventory of all personal property, 
approved by the Auditor of the Commonwealth and installed 
last year at the hospitals for the insane, is applied this year for 
the first time to the institutions under the State Board of Char- 
ity. This is the first year that imiformity sufficient for detailed 
comparison has been secured. 

The following tables are designed to show in detail the finan- 
cial condition of each institution. The first tables summarize in 
convenient form the sum total of the State's property represented 
bv each institution. These are followed bv an analvsis of all 
receipts during the year, and a similar analysis of expenditures. 
A detailed exhibit of maintenance expenditures is followed by a 
comparison of appropriations and expenditures therefrom. 

I. I:n'vextory. 

The tabulation is for convenience divided into four parts. 
Parts I. and II. exhibit realty, Part III. shows personalty. 
Part IV. summarizes the whole. 

Prom Parts I. and II. it appears that on November 30, 1911, 
the eleven State charitable institutions returned $4,395, 61:l:.5o 
in real estate, $267,108.98 of this amount being land, and 
$4,128,535.55 representing buildings. Thus far no inter- 
mediate classification to include betterments has been adopted. 
Such items, therefore, as water, sewage, telephone and fire 
systems are included in the miscellaneous column under the 
head '' buildings." Part III. shows the uniform analysis of 
personal property adopted by the State Auditor to the amount 
of $1,001,698.52. The total valuation, real and personal, as 
shown in Part IV.. is $5,397,343.05.

ever source for whatever purpose, excepting certain private 
funds, casting all together for ready comparison. The tabula- 
tion also shows such of the receipts as under the law are avail- 
able for maintenance purposes in 1912. According to this table

amount. $1,658,159.93 was received from the State treasury, 
and the remainder, $189,055.83, came in on account of the in- 
stitution, whether through board of patients, sale of products, 
or otherwise. One hundred forty-three thousand seven hun- 
dred forty-nine dollars and ninety-four cents of this latter fig- 
ure is available for maintenance purposes in 1912.

Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 65 

III. EXPEXDITUKES. 

Table III., divided into four parts, shows all expenditures of 
whatever nature on account of the several institutions. Part I. 
deals with maintenance only. Part II. exhibits outlays for 
special purposes, divided into four items, namely, land, build- 
ings, furnishings and equipment and miscellaneous. In Part 
III. are shown all moneys expended for purposes so far apart 
from the institution proper as to fall outside the uniform classi- 
fication. In general. Trustees' expenses appear in the miscel- 
laneous column under maintenance. There are two exceptions, 
namely, expenses of the Trustees of the Training Schools, and 
like expenses of the sanatoria. These boards, with large duties 
of administration and oversight, involving in one instance an 
extensive probation system, ex[iend money from appropria- 
tions of their own apart from the several institutions in their 
charge. Such outlays, though apart from regular maintenance 
and not capable of inclusion in the institution analysis, are 
nevertheless a proper part of the expenditures which the com- 
munity makes for the maintenance of the several institutions. • 
They are therefore set out in a separate tabulation. Part III. 
shows, also, one other expenditure apart from the uniform 
classification. This is the industries fund administered by the 
Trustees of the State Farm. The fund is self-perpetuating. 

Part IV. summarizes the whole. 

From this table it appears that $1,445,926.11 was spent for 
maintenance exclusive of expenditures for special purposes men- 
tioned in Part II., which amounted to $156,763.56. Adding to 
these amounts $55,470.26 for sundry expenditures, as shown in 
Part III., gives a grand total of $1,658,159.93 spent on account 
of the eleven institutions. 

In addition to the total expenditures as indicated above, two 
institutions, Lyman School and the Industrial School for Girls, 
have private trust funds which are administered for the benefit 
of inmates, but independently of the State's investment. The 
custody of each is vested in the State Treasurer, whose duty it 
is to invest the same and to pay therefrom at the request of the 
Trustees. Three of these, the Lvman fund, the Lvman Trust 



66 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

fund and the Lamb fund apply to Lyman School, while the 
Fay, the Mary Lamb and the Rogers book funds pertain to 
the Industrial School for Girls. From these sources a total of 
$2jl72.72 was expended, of which $28.57 was for books out of 
the Rogers fund, and the balance from the Lyman funds. The 
major part of the outlay was for entertainments, drill and band 
equipment, athletic goods, lectures, prizes and the like.

In the uniforin analysis of maintenance expenditures there 
are eight classifications, namely, salaries, wages and labor; 
food ; clothing and clothing materials ; furnishings ; heat, light 
and power; repairs and improvements; farm, stable and 
grounds ; and miscellaneous. 

Table lY., following, is divided into eight parts, with a 
summary, and shows for all the eleven institutions the total 
cost of maintenance for each of the main heads in the analysis. 
It further shows all receipts from sales or refunds, the differ- 
ence, which is the net cost to the institution, and the average 
net weekly per capita cost to the institution, with a column 
showing the average corresponding per capita for the three- 
year period just ended.

76 STATE BOARD OF CHARITi'. [P. D. 17. 

V. Comparison of Appkopeiatioxs a^*d Expexditukes 

THEEEFEOM. 

Table V. affords comparison of appropriations for mainte- 
nance with the respective amounts expended therefrom. Appro- 
priations are classified as receipts available for maintenance, 
and appropriations in addition to such amounts. All receipts at 
the four State sanatoria and the Hospital School, though turned, 
like receipts of all the other institutions, into the State treasury, 
are by law applicable to maintenance in the succeeding year. 
Receipts at the remaining institutions are not so applied. By 
this comparison, the total maintenance expenditures fell short 
of the total appropriations by $5,928.89. The actual surplus 
turned back was $6,621.49, but this figure is reduced by a de- 
ficit of 69 cents at the Industrial School for Boys, and of 
$691.91 at Penikese Hospital. Receipts of 1910 available for 
maintenance in 1911 totaled $121,086.39. By far the greater 
part of this amount was for board of inmates. 

VI. Appropeiattoxs foe Special Pueposes. 

The total of appropriations for special purposes during 1911, 
as shown by Table VI., was $130,118.96. In addition to this 
amount, the several institutions began the year with a total of 
$212,701.12 unexpended balance on previous appropriations. 
The grand total available for 1911 was therefore $342,820.08. 
The amount expended from this total was $156,763.56, leaving 
an unexpended balance of $186,056.52, of which $186,016.50 
will be available in 1912. The small remainder of $40.02 re- 
verts to the State treasurv.

Part L] GEXER.\L WORK OF THE BOARD. 79 

VII. Xet Cost to the Commonwealth. 

The net cost to the State of maintaining or conducting each 
institution is the difference between the total expenditure and 
the total receipts from all sources other than the State treasury. 
This total outlay must cover all moneys spent for maintenance 
and for special purposes, together with all expenditures for 
sundry purposes apart from the institution, and interest on out- 
standing bonds. 

These items are compared in Table VII. For convenience, 
the daily average number of inmates and the net weekly per 
capita cost to the State are added. This tabulation shows a. 
daily average number of inmates of 6,620.90; expenditures for 
aU purposes of $1,773,521.68. Total receipts from institutions 
amounted to $189,055.83. The net cost to the State for all 
eleven institutions amounted to $1,5 84,1:65. 85, making the net 
weekly per capita cost to the State of $1,589. 

YIII. Analysis of Pay Roll. 

Table VIII. , divided into six parts, shows comparative analy- 
sis of the pay roll. The first five parts divide service into five 
classes, namely, general administration, medical service, ward 
service, repairs and improvements, and farm, stable and 
grounds. Part VI. summarizes the whole. The table shows the 
full roster, that is, the full number of persons required during 
the year, and in an opposite column the daily average number 
employed, with the same average for the three-year period end- 
ing with 1910. The same treatment is given the average 
monthly compensation and the weekly per capita cost. Thus it 
appears that the full roster for all institutions together was 
1,129.29. The total average number employed was 1,077.69, 
while for the three-year period preceding 1911 it was 936.41:. 
The average monthly compensation paid was $474.43 as against 
$589.33 in the preceding three-year period. The number of 
inmates to one employee remains about constant.

IX. Average Peices paid for Food. 
As a part of the Board's fiscal supervision, all the bills for 
each institution are analyzed and a schedule made therefrom, 
showing a comparison of prices paid by each institution for com- 
modities purchased. Table IX. shows in convenient form the 
average price for 1911, and for the three-year period ending 
with 1910, for each of several staple articles of food.

94 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

As will be seen from this table, there were 904 minors in the 
six training schools during 1911. Xine of this number were 
girls; 8 in the Suffolk School and 1 at Middlesex. In compli- 
ance with a statute passed in March, 1911, providing for the 
commitment of female truants, absentees and school offenders 
in Boston to the charge and custody of the Children's Institu- 
tions Trustees, to be cared for by them in the same manner as 
neglected children, the 8 girls at the Suffolk Institution have 
been removed; so that the year closed with but 1 female child 
on the rolls of the Schools. 

Two hundred and sixty-five children were admitted during 
the year. Fifty-three of these were returned from parole, either 
for violation or because of bad home conditions. The remainder 
were committed for the following causes : for truancy, 182 ; ab- 
sentees, 25; school offenders, 4; delinquents, 1. 

During the year, 312 children passed out of the Schools; of 
this number, 219 were released on parole; 91 received their 
final discharge; 1 was transferred to Lyman School, and 1 to 
the Industrial School for Boys at Shirley. 

The ages of the boys ranged from eight to sixteen; the aver- 
age in all the Schools being eleven years, ten months, twenty- 
two and one-half days. 

The cost of maintaining these institutions varies greatly with 
the opportunity for institution income. The Hampden County 
School, for instance, has fewer boys than the School plant will 
normally accommodate, and is hemmed in by buildings and 
other land developments so that except for a small garden very 
little can be raised on the premises. The average weekly per 
capita cost was $3.18 during the past year. 

The Middlesex County School, on the other hand, is located 
in a fertile district and has 30 acres of land under cultiva- 
tion. The number in the School is up to normal capacity and 
the boys, aside from receiving wholesome exercise on the farm, 
are turning their agricultural efforts to such good account that 
the net per capita for the past year was $2. 

The Suffolk County Training School, with a per capita of 
$5.93, is somewhat below its normal capacity in numbers, and 
has a larger proportion of employees to inmates than any of the 



Part I.] GEXER.\L WORK OF THE BOARD. 95 

other Schools. The proportion for each of the Schools is as 
follows : — 

Essex Counn' Training School. 1 employee to every 54- inmates. 

Hampden County Training School, 1 employee to every 4— 
inmates. 

Middlesex County Training School, 1 employee to every 6+ 
inmates. 

Xorfolk, Bristol, and Plymouth Union Training School, 1 em- 
ployee to every 5 — inmates. 

Suffolk County Training School, 1 employee to every 3— inmates. 

TTorcester County Training School, 1 employee to every 9 in- 
mates. 

While methods of administration vary, the care and super- 
vision thi'oughout the Schools has heen uniformly of fair qual- 
ity. The boys receive schooling in efficiency and in hours ap- 
proximating that received in the public schools of the district in 
which the School is located. Essex offers somewhat shorter 
hours ; Hampden, with the same hours as the Springfield 
Schools, has sessions the "year round. The teaching staff at each 
school coutain? at least one normal school graduate. The Essex 
and Middlesex Schools offer sloyd. and in addition afford mu- 
sical training. 

In all the Schools the boys attend to the hottsework, and all 
outdoor chores, usually also doing their own cooking, baking, 
sewing, and laundering. 

In the Essex County School the boys are allowed to converse 
at meals. 

With the possible exception of the Hampden School, the diet 
sheet shows ample variety. 

Discipline is effected in the main by a system of merits for 
good conduct and excellence in the performance of dtity. Cor- 
poral punishment is retained as a means of discipline at all the 
schools, but its exercise appears to be infrequent and confined 
within reasonable limits. 

Though most of the Schools offer wholesome outdoor employ- 
ment to the boys, none affords organized play. In every School 
a certain play time is set apart. This time is taken up in 
seasonal games, but for lack of organization there is a tendency 



96 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

for a few to play and many to look on. Better results for the 
boy might be gained by reasonable athletic direction during the 
play hour without sacrificing his feeling of liberty and freedom 
from what he considers the firmer discipline of the institution. 
In the larger Schools such organization is felt to be feasible 
and desirable. It appears to be largely a question of the will- 
ingness of the several Coimty Commissioners to provide funds. 

The exercise of the parole system shows no marked changes 
from previous years. Except in Boston parole appears to be 
effected rather upon a basis of the boy's record in School than 
out of careful consideration of the environment into which the 
boy must go upon leaving the institution. Due to the energy of 
competent superintendents in searching out the home condi- 
tions, for themselves, the results obtained are better than might 
otherwise be expected. 

On February 15. 1911, Mr. George C. Minard replaced Mr. 
Dana P. Dame as Superintendent of the Suffolk County Train- 
ing School. Mr. Minard has had long experience with boys, and 
the future of the Suffolk School under his superintendency is 
bright. Since the beginning of the fiscal year Mr. Warren, 
Superintendent of the Middlesex School, has died. The en- 
viable reputation of this School is due largely to his effort. 
The year has been completed with Mr. George H. Mason as 
Acting Superintendent. 

SUPERVISIOX OF THE SETTLED POOR RELIEVED OR SUP- 
PORTED BY CITIES AXD TOTVXS. 
Th:e City axd Town Paupers. 
The law provides that the State Board of Charity may visit 
and inspect all places where city or town poor are stipported in 
families, and requires the Board to visit, at least once a year, 
not only all children who are maintained by the Common- 
wealth, but all minor children who are supported at the expense 
of any city or town. Children illegally retained in city or town 
almshouses, — i.e., pauper children over two years of age, or, 
if the mothers are inmates, over five years of age, and not 
defective in body or mind, who have been retained in an alms- 
house for more than two months — must be removed therefrom

cerned. (Revised Laws, chapter 81, sections 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 43; 
Acts of 1905, chapters 2S5, 303.) 

The following data show numbers and location of the various 
classes of persons coming within the scope of this statute : —

Of the 329 adult poor persons reported by the local authori- 
ties as fully supported in families on January 1, 1911, 25 had 
died and 29 had been removed before visits could be made. 
The remaining 275 — 99 men and 176 women — were all vis- 
ited and reported on by the Board's agents. They were sup-

Their ages were as follows : 7 between twenty-one and thirty ; 
19 between thirty and forty; 20 between forty and fifty; 29 
between fifty and sixty; 53 between sixty and seventy; 86 be- 
tween seventy and eighty; 49 betw^een eighty and ninety; and 
12 between ninety and one hundred. For their support there 
was paid in 26 cases less than $2 per week; in TO cases from 
$2 to $3 per week; in 110 cases from $3 to $4 per week; and 
in the remaining 69 cases — mostly of old or feeble persons — 
the rate varied from $4 to $11.50, according to the amoimt 
of care required. Of the whole number, about 60 per cent. 
were reported to be in good or fairly good physical condition, 
and 84 per cent, in good mental condition. In all but 9 cases, 
or 3 per cent., they were apparently receiving good care. There 
were 91 able to do light work, either in the house or about the 
premises. There were 57 supported in their own homes. In 
161 cases, according to the reports, the Overseers of the Poor 
complied with the law requiring them to visit the paupers at 
least once in every six months; in 16 cases they made one visit 
a year ; and in the remaining 78 cases no evidence of visits was 
found. 

Depeistdent Miis-or Children with Settlement, provided 
FOR IN Almshouses. 
Visits w^ere made in the cases of 231 children — 101 boys 
and 130 girls — reported to be cared for by the following cities 
and to^vns in their almshouses: Ashburnham, 1; Beverly, 1; 
Boston, 82 ; Braintree, 5 ; Cambridge, 4 ; Fairhaven, 1 ; Fall

these children, 75 had been removed from the almshouse and 
11 had died before the time of visitation. Of the remainder, 
58 were so defective in body or mind as to render their reten- 
tion in the almshouse desirable, and 1 was removed after notifi- 
cation by the Board of Overseers of the Poor that they were 
detained contrary to law. There were 25 who attended school, 
and 12 who did more or less work.

Of the whole number, 57 were cared for and treated in pub- 
lic and private hospitals and asylums. There were 453 who at- 
tended school, and 234 who did more or less work. Of the 
whole number, 551 were in fairly good physical condition and 
561 in fairly good mental condition. The price of board varied 
from less than $1 per week to $5. These children were found 
to be well cared for; the few exceptions have been brought to 
the attention of the local Overseers.

Sections 39-42 of chapter 81 of the Revised Laws, as 
amended by chapter 115 of the Acts of 1905, are as follows: — 

Sectiox 39. Overseers of the poor shall keep full and accurate 
records, in a form prescribed by the state board of charity, of the 
paupers fully supported, the persons relieved and partially sup- 
ported, and the travellers and vagrants lodged at the expense of 



100 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

their cities and towns and of the amount paid for such support and 
relief. 

Section 40. They shall annually in April, for the year ending 
on the last day of March, return to the state board of charity the 
number of such persons supported and relieved, the cost thereof, 
and a record of those fully supported. 

Sectiox 41. In the year nineteen hundred and five and in every 
tenth year thereafter the return of the overseers of the poor shall 
contain true and correct answers to such additional inquiries as the 
state board of charity may deem it advisable to make. 

Sectiojj' 42. If the overseers of the poor of a city or town refuse 
or neglect to comply with the requirements of the three preceding 
sections, such city or town shall forfeit one dollar for each day's 
neglect, and the amount of such forfeiture shall be deducted from 
any amount to which said city or town may be entitled in reim- 
bursement for relief of state paupers as provided in sections fifteen 
and sixteen of chapter eighty-five; and if no such reimbursement 
shall be due to said city or town, the forfeiture shall be deducted 
from any money which may be due to it from the Commonwealth. 

Under these laws the Board reported to the Treasurer of the 
Commonwealth the names of the cities and towns that failed to 
make their pauper returns during the month of April, 1911, 
together with the amount of penalty incurred in each instance, 
as follows : Abington, $11 ; Amesbury, $1 ; Amherst, $1 ; Arl- 
ington, $65 ; Blandford, $8 ; Bourne, $5 ; Canton, $1 ; Chelms- 
ford, $5; Clarksburg, $7; Dedham, $1; Edgartown, $8;

$7; Westwood, $2; Windsor, $15; Wrentham, $17; total, $342. 

ADMIXISTRATITE DUTIES OF THE BOARD. 

In addition to the duties of supervision and publicity above 
given, the Board is charged with certain duties entirely admin- 
istrative. These are chiefly grouped under two heads, viz., 
State adult poor and State minor wards. 

The administrative duties with reference to the State adult 



Part L] GENERAL \YORK OF THE BOARD. 101 

poor comprise the discharge of sane inmates of the State In- 
firmaiy and the State Earm; the execution of laws relative to 
the release on parole of prisoners at the State Earm ; the inves- 
tigation as to settlement of persons, possibly settled, who have 
been supported, relieved, and buried by cities and towns, and of 
sane inmates of State institutions; the directing of aid of un- 
settled persons by cities and towns ; the transfer of sane paupers 
from one institution to another; the sending of paupers to the 
places within and without the State where they belong; and 
the management of the leper hospital at Penikese Island. 

The administrative duties with regard to State minor wards 
comprise the maintenance and care of delinquent, neglected, 
and dependent children coming into the custody of the Board 
through court commitment and otherwise, and the execution 
of the laws concerning abandoned infants, infant boarding- 
houses, and the licensing of lying-in hospitals. 

The State Outdoor Pooe. 
JSlumhers. 

Unsettled persons in distress are aided in the first instance 
by the city or town in which they are so found. Eor purposes 
of administration, these State cases are divided into the fol- 
lowing classification : — 

{a^ The sick State poor (Revised Laws, chapter 85, sections 
14, 15). 

(b) Cases of dangerous diseases (Acts of 1902, chapter 213, 
amended by Acts of 1907, chapter 386, and Acts of 1909, chap- 
ter 380). 

(c) Cases of wife settlement (Revised Laws, chapter 80, sec- 
tion 1, chapter 85, section 16, amended by Acts of 1909, chap- 
ter 98). 

{d) Cases of temporary aid (Revised Laws, chapter 81, sec- 
tion 21, amended by Acts of 1903, chapter 355). 

The statutes provide that the expense of such relief, following 
proper notice to the Board and approval after consideration, 
shall be reimbursed, by the Commonwealth. In accordance with 
these laws 14.211 such notices were received during the official 
year from 233 cities and towns, on account of 28,214 persons, 



102 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

a net increase of 156, or about 1 per cent, over the previous 
year. Of these notices, 10,156, concerning 11,028 individuals, 
Tvere on account of persons too sick to be removed (including 
2,521 notices, concerning 2,544 individuals, on account of per- 
sons sick with dangerous diseases) ; 880 notices, concerning 
3,856 individuals, were for cases of wife-settlement; and 3.205 
notices, concerning 13,330 persons, were for temporary aid and 
transportation. Of the total number of notices above men- 
tioned, 2,328, concerning 6,622 individuals, were in cases on 
account of which a previous notice had been received during 
the year. 

(a) Cases of SicJc State Poor. — The 10,156 notices of sick 
State poor were sent by 178 cities and towns, concerning 11,028 
persons, of whom 10,174 were represented as being too ill to be 
removed. This number shows a net decrease in the number of 
notices over the previous year of 587, or about 5^4 per cent., 
and, as compared with the official year 1908-09, an increase of 
863, or about dYw per cent. The largest number of notices re- 
ceived in any one month was 1,076 in January; and the small- 
est, 708, in September. Of these, 5,673, or about 56 per cent, 
of the whole number, were from the city of Boston, viz., 5,575 
from the Boston City Hospital (including 1,073 cases of dan- 
gerous diseases), 41 directly from the Board of Health, 12 
from the Institutions Department, 40 from the Boston Lying-in 
Hospital, and 5 on account of persons aided in their homes. 

The number of visits made by the officers of the Board, in 
the investigation of these 10,156 notices, was 22,998. As a 
result of these investigations, the Overseers of the Poor were 
directed to discontinue aid in 2,485 cases, — in 2,482 on ac- 
count of the recovery of the patient sufficiently to permit of 
his removal to the State Infirmary, and in 3 for other reasons. 
In 335 aid was refused because at the time of the application 
the patient could have been removed without danger. Out of 
the 7.816 cases investigated by the visitors, settlements were 
found in 559, covering 799 persons. By order of the Board, 4 
of the eases were sent to the State Infirmary. Among those 
reported as sick there were 861 deaths.

previously stated as received relative to the sick State poor, 
2,521 were on accoimt of diseases dangerous to the public 
health, and provided for 2,54-i persons,, of whom 2,530 were 
patients. These figures show a net decrease, in the number of 
notices as compared with the previous year, of 559, or about 
IS per cent., and as compared with the year 1908-09, an in- 
crease of 86^ or about 3 per cent. These notices were from 90 
cities and towns; 711 being for cases of diphtheria, 572 for 
tuberculosis, 545 for scarlet fever, 295 for typhoid, 282 for 
measles, 31 for whooping cough, 16 for cerebro-spinal menin- 
gitis, 11 for ophthalmia neonatorum, 8 for infantile paralysis, 
1 for smallpox, 3 for tetanus, 3 for leprosy, 2 for chicken-pox, 
1 for trachoma, and 1 for membranous croup. In 299 cases 
settlements were found, covering 376 persons. 

(c) Cases of Wife-settlement. — The number of notices re- 
ceived was 880, from 75 cities and to^^iis, concerning 3,856 per- 
sons, of whom 538 were sick. These figures show a net increase 
in the number of notices, as compared with the previous year, 
of 163, or about 23 per cent., and as compared with the year 
1908-09 an increase of 25, or about 3 per cent. Of these 880 
notices, 237, or about 27 per cent., were from the city of Bos- 
ton. There were 162 new cases investigated by the agents of 
the Board, and 7 settlements found. Of the 3,856 persons pre- 
viously mentioned, 2,976 were acknowledged as settled, and as 
7 settlements were found among the remaining 880, the whole 
number aided by the State was 873, of whom 315 were sick. 
The number of visits made in these cases was 1.262. As a re- 
sult of the visits, the local authorities were advised to discon- 
tinue aid in 4 cases. 

(d) Cases of Temporary Aid. — The number of notices re- 
ceived was 3,205, concerning 13,330 persons, from 174 cities 
and towns. The largest number of notices received in any one 
month was 827 in January; and the smallest number, 146, in 
May. The whole number shows a net increase, as compared 
with the preceding year, of 580. or 22 per cent., and with the 
year 1908-09 an increase of 478, or about l7i/> per cent. Of 
these notices, 254. or about 8 per cent., were received from the 
city of Boston. The number of visits made under these notices 
was 4,610. There were 1.084 new cases investigated bv the

agents of the Board, and 262 settlements were found, covering 
948 persons. As a result of visitation, aid was discontinued 
in 57 cases. There were 49 persons removed to the State In- 
firmary, and in 4 cases which refused to be removed to the 
State Infirmary^ further aid was declined. 

Transportation has been furnished during the year to 136 
persons; of these, 17 were sent to European countries, viz., 
Italy, 12; Ireland, 3; Portugal, 2; 38 to Canada and other 
British Provinces; 81 to other States, viz., Connecticut, 9; 
Illinois, 2; Maine, 21; Michigan, 5; E'ew Hampshire, 14; Xew 
York, 12 ; Pennsylvania, 5 ; Rhode Island, 3 ; Virginia, 1 ; Ver- 
mont, 9 (Revised Laws, chapter 81, section 21). 

Transportation has also been provided for 46 shipwi-ecked

shown in the following tabulation. It is to be noted that the 
total shown in this table may vary somewhat from the total paid 
out of the treasury during the fiscal year from the appropria- 
tion in question. This possible variance arises from the fact 
that bills audited by this Board are in some cases not actually 
paid during the year for w^hich the audit is shown. Eor actual

ChILDEEX IX THE CaEE AXD CuSTODY OF THE BOAED. 

By reference to the tables on p. 117 et. seq, it Tvill appear 
that at the close of the last official year. Xovember 30. 1911, 
there were 4,960 children in the care and custody of the 
Board, — 372 juvenile olfenders, 2,760 neglected children, and 
1,82S dependent children. There were 691 children received 
during the year, viz., 57 juvenile offenders, 381 neglected chil- 
dren, and 253 dependent children. There were 179 discharged, 
viz., 4 juvenile offenders. 162 neglected children, and 313 de- 
pendent children. Of the 4.960 'children, 4.572 were over three 
years of age. and were cared for by the Board as follows: in 
places free of expense to the State for support, 1.241 : in places 
supported in part by the State, 61 : in places fully supported by 
the State, 2,915; and at the State Infirmary and other institu- 
tions, not penal, subject to care and treatment, 238; 18 were 
married, and the whereabouts of 99 others were unknovm.^ 

Infants. 

The whole number of infants, or children under three years 
of age. in charge of the Board at the beginning of the official 
year. December 1. 1910. was 446 ; the number received since was 
260; making the whole number supported by the State, 706. 
There remained at the close of the official year. November 30, 
1911. 388. 

Of the 706 infants supported. 8 were legally adopted: 211 
were transferred to the subdivision for children, having reached 
the age of three years ; 44 were discharged to parents or rela- 
tives : 3 were discharged and placed in the Home for Destitute 
Catholic Children by order of the court : 1 was discharged on 
bail ; 3 were discharged to place of settlement : and 48 died. 

Of the remaining 388 infants, 12 were in homes without pay- 
ment of board. 

1 In addition to these 4.960 children, the Board had under supen-ision and Wsitation. Novem- 
ber 30, 1911. 3.35 inmates of the Lyman School for Boys; 297 inmates of the State Industrial School 
for Girls; 744 boys and 355 girls in the custody of the Trustees for Massachusetts Training 
Schools outside of the Schools; 134 boys and 76 girls, inmates of the Massachusetts Hospital 
School; 161 boys, inmates of the Industrial School for Boys; 74 boys and 91 girls, inmates of the 
four State sanatoria; 183 boys and 215 girls, inmates of the State Infirman.-, who are either young 
infants with their mothers or else under hospital treatment; 592 inmates of the county training 
schools, and about 959 children supported at the expense of the cities and towns: making, approx- 
imately, a total of 9,176 children in the care and custody and under the supervision of the Board. 



108 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17 

Of the 260 infants received, 57 were committed to the custody 
of the Board of Overseers of the Poor, and 7 were received from 
the State Infirmary under the provisions of section 20, chapter 
83, of the Revised Laws, which provides for the commitment of 
unsettled indigent or neglected children to the custody of the 
State Board of Charity. Of these, 7 were foundlings and the 
others were committed as unsettled indigent infants. All chil- 
dren received by the Board are brought to the ojSfice of the Super- 
intendent in the State House, where they are carefully examined 
by a physician. This examination has been, lately, extended to 
include the taking of specimens for bacteriological examination. 
These specimens are examined through the courtesy of the State 
Board of Health and their reports are promptly returned to this 
office, where they are filed and form a part of the permanent 
record of each child. 

All children who appear upon examination to be suffering 
from tuberculosis, syphilis, gonorrhoea, or scabies are sent to 
the State Infirmary for treatment before being placed in private 
families. 

There were 106 children under three received from the courts, 
committed under chapter 334 of the Acts of 1903, as amended 
by chapter 131 of the Acts of 1909, providing for the commit- 
ment of children under sixteen years of age, gTOwing up without 
education or without salutary control, by reason of orphanage, 
neglect, crime, cruelty, insanity, drunkenness, or other vice of 
their parents, or in circumstances exposing them to lead idle and 
dissolute lives, or to be dependent upon public charity. Many of 
these children when received are poorly nourished and suffering 
from the want of proper care and neglect of their natural guard- 
ians. Those suffering from acute disease of eyes, ears, tonsils, 
or from adenoids are sent at once to the Massachusetts Eye and 
Ear Infirmary for treatment. Those having serious physical de- 
formities are sent to the Children's Hospital, where they are 
treated and fitted with proper surgical appliances. 

Four were removed from unsuitable boarding places under 
section 26 of the Revised Laws, which provides for the removal 
by an officer of the Board of children under the age of seven 
years, not under the personal care of parents or guardians and 



Part I.] GENERAL ^YORK OF THE BOARD. 109 

not receiving proper care. Although the number of infants re- 
moved under this law is small, it shows that notwithstanding the 
present system of rigid inspection of homes where young infants 
are boarded, a home is occasionally found where the operation 
of this law is necessary. 

Eighty-six were received under section 36 of chapter S3 of 
the Revised Laws, authorizing the Board to provide for the main- 
tenance of dependent children under the age of sixteen years on 
the application of parents, guardians, friends, or Overseers of 
the Poor. 

The medical visitors made 3,598 visits. This number includes 
visits to infant wards boarded in families, visits of investigation 
and inspection of homes of applicants for licenses and for chil- 
dren to board, and examinations of children in the office. 

The number of applications received during the year for in- 
fants to board was 443 ; 26 were withdrawn ; 88 were visited and 
approved ; and 30 were visited and disapproved. 

Those applicants living at a distance of more than 25 miles 
from Boston, except in rare instances, are notified that their 
homes are not available as boarding places for infants on account 
of the extra time and expense involved in visitation. 

Since 443 applications for infants to board and only 260 new 
infants were received during the year, it will be seen that the 
number of women applying for infants to board is gTeatly in 
excess of the number of infants to be placed. 

As a rule but two infants are placed in one home, and in many 
cases only one. 

The rate of mortality for the year for the whole number of 
children imder three years supported was 6.8 per cent., slightly 
lower than the previous year, and the lowest since the boarding- 
out system was established in ISSO. Of the 706 infants sup- 
ported during the year, 203 were under one year of age. Thirty- 
four died, making the mortality rate of infants supported under 
one year of age 16.74 per cent, for the year. Although the total 
mortality rate of children under three years was less than the 
previous year, that of children under one year of age is somewhat 
greater, largely due to the protracted period of excessive heat 
during the past summer.

A nursery is still maintained as a temporary home, where 
nearly all the .infants received are sent after examination in the

Ill 



hivestigating Depariuient. 

The addition of a visitor and a clerk to the force in this 
division has made the year's work* more systematic and effective. 
In addition to the work done in connection with the reception 
and discharge of dependent children, considerable attention has 
been given to cases committed imder section 20 of chapter 83 of 
the Revised Laws. There have also been some investigations 
made for the discharge of neglected children. 

The policy carried out by the investigator has always been to 
keep families together whenever possible. An entire change in 
the attitude toward the reception of illegitimate children for 
adoption, under section 13 of the law above cited, has resulted. 
The recognition of the right of an illegitimate child to its own 
mother's love and protection has made it unnecessary to resort 
to this section of the law. In the last two years no child has 
been so received. Nevertheless the fact that this legitimate 
means of disposing of unwelcome children is no longer adopted 
by mothers, does not mean that the children have been disposed 
of by less desirable methods. Adoptions in Massachusetts have 
not increased to any great extent within the past few years. 
The number of abandoned children during 1911 is considerably 
less than the number abandoned in 1907 and 1908, and during 
the current year there have been committed to our care only 7 
foundlings. This is the smallest number on record, — smaller 
by 10 than any number reported in the last "ftve years. 

The following tabulation affords a comparison of commit- 
ments to the Board under sections 13 and 26 of chapter 83, for 
the past six years, together with a similar comparison of adop- 
tions.

112 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

The work with the mothers of illegitimate children has 
formed by far the largest problem for the visitors. Of 400 cases 
investigated 122 were applications from unmarried mothers. 
As a result of investigation of these 122 cases, 14 children were 
received under section 36 of chapter 83 ; 5 were committed as 
abandoned and 2 as neglected; 36 were cared for by their rela- 
tives without supervision; 25 were cared for under the super- 
vision of other societies. There are at present 31 cases pending. 
Many of these mothers are mentally deficient, yet the Board 
is often unable to secure custodial care for them. The tend- 
ency among private societies is to consider work with this type 
of woman a special problem for the State and, as the private 
societies are refusing to meet the situation the work falls more 
and more upon our investigating visitors. 

A vital problem closely related to that of illegitimacy, which 
the department is watching with especial keenness, is that of 
the unsupervised child placed at board by its parents. Applica- 
tions far support of such children come largely from the board- 
ing women. Although these form but a small portion of the 
total number of applications, they require much time in follow- 
ing up clues, which are often very indefinite. About half of 
these children eventually come to us under section 20 of chap- 
ter 83 as abandoned. Thus of the 64 committed in this way 
36 were previously known to investigating visitors and the 
commitment had been advised. 

The Board is more and more impressed by the magnitude 
of the problem of mothers, with dependent children, who seek as- 
sistance. Of the 400 cases investigated, 263 were of this class, 
122 were the unmarried mothers mentioned above, 80 were de- 
serted wives, 28 were widows, 14 were separated from their 
husbands on account of illness, 7 had husbands in jail, 6 were 
divorced or legally separated, and 7 were apart from their hus- 
bands for other reasons. Of the 80 deserted wives 6 had ille- 
gitimate children, 3 had children whose paternity was doubtful, 
6 were known to be openly living immoral lives, 3 were addicted 
to the use of liquor, 4 were known to be wholly incompetent and 
shiftless, 7 were incurably ill, 1 was insane, and in 6 instances 
the marriage had been a forced one. These may be cited as 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 113 

possible causes of the husband's desertions. Six of the fathers 
returned voluntarily; 7 were located and arrested for nonsup- 
port, of whom 3 were actually compelled to contribute money 
toward the support of the family; 67 could not be located. The 
problem of the widow is small compared with that of the de- 
serted wife, and the fact that in 27 families where the husband 
had died only 5 were broken up shows that aid in the home has 
been secured by either private or public associations. In work- 
ing with these various problem? of women with dependent chil- 
dren, our workers are so constantly impressed by the fact that 
vice, incompetency, ignorance, and a lack of natural mother love 
are resultant often from insanity, feeble-mindedness, or other 
mental deficiencies and peculiarities, that a special study of 
these women is being made in conjunction with the Conference 
of Workers for Girls. 

Co-operation with the local boards of Overseers is strength- 
ened as our purposes become more clearly understood. No de- 
pendent child with a settlement is now received without a signed 
statement from the Overseers of the Poor of the town of settle- 
ment, declaring that the town will be responsible for the sup- 
port of the child. This policy of reimbursement at times has 
met with disapproval, but the growing feeling throughout the 
State is one of appreciation. Our visitors investigate all appli- 
cations for settled as well as unsettled children, — an inquiry 
which is generally the means of saving large expense to the 
towns and is at the same time helpful in standardizing the work 
of the local boards. Of the 193 children accepted 26 were set- 
tled cases. 

Adoptions. 

During the past year, 199 applications for the adoption of 
children in the care of the Board have been received. All, with 
one exception, were from the Xew England States, and a large 
percentage from Massachusetts, namely, Maine, 5 ; Xew Hamp- 
shire, 7 ; Rhode Island, 7 ; Connecticut, 2 ; Massachusetts, 177 ; 
and ]^ew Jersey, 1. 

Eighty homes were investigated, of which 18 were not ap- 
proved. Sixty were found satisfactory and children placed in 
them. Forty-four applicants were refused without investiga-

tion, because of their evident imclesir ability, and 37 were with- 
drawn. Through legal adoption, 37 homes were secured in 
Massachusetts, and 1 in Maine, making a total of 38 children, 
of whom 13 were boys and 25 girls. The youngest child 
adopted was a little girl of seventeen months, and the oldest, a 
boy of 15 years. Thirty-eight cases are now pending, in 26 of 
which the homes have not yet been investigated. Twelve good 
homes are awaiting suitable children. 

At the close of the year, 68 children, namely, 44 girls and 
24 boys, were in approved homes, on trial for adoption. 

Children over Three Years of Age, 

During the last fiscal year a complete change has been ef- 
fected in our record system, making, we believe, more uniform^ 
and compact information which has been heretofore less avail- 
able. The unit of the family has replaced that of the child, and 
now histories of all children of the same family are filed to- 
gether. One index combines information formerly secured only 
after reference to four different sources. 

Special attention has been given to the detection and segrega- 
tion of feeble-minded children with good results in two direc- 
tions. The feeble-minded are given the opportunities offered by 
the Schools maintained for this special class. The normal chil- 
dren are afforded better opportunities by their removal from 
contact with the feeble-minded. 

Unfortunately there is not adequate provision in the Schools 
for all the feeble-minded in the Commonwealth. Of the 230 
children examined during the year, 49 were declared not to be 
feeble-minded, 38 were committed to the schools for this class, 
while 84 were provided for at the State Infirmary, and 39 re- 
mained at board. Two hundred and twenty-five children now 
under observation are to be examined by alienists as soon as op- 
portunity offers. 

As will be seen, those feeble-minded for whom there is not 
room at the Schools are waiting, in the majority of cases, at the 
State Infirmary. This arrangement is not ideal, but it at least 
insures protection for the child and removes a dangerous ele- 
ment from the community. 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 



115 



For some time we have observed an increasing proportion of 
our children to be defective physically as well as mentally. This 
is not strange when the following facts are considered : first, pri- 
vate charities, reaching out over the State in increasing effi- 
ciency, are caring more and more for the cases where construc- 
tive work is indicated, that is, where eventually reunion with 
family is desirable and probable, and where such indications 
warrant the output of money for this purpose. Thus, properly, 
it is left for the public agency to support those for whom there is 
only slight prospect of permanent betterment. This group obvi- 
ously contains those of poor heredity and those who have been 
deprived of early opportunity. Second, there is a marked 
growth of community responsibility towards the unfortunate; 
whereas heretofore these same children existed in large num- 
bers, their presence, especially in the more rural communities, 
was not even suspected. They now come to the attention of the 
courts and, by commitment, to the care of this Board. Third, 
there is increasing vigilance on the part of the staff of workers 
within the department who are ever on the alert to take to spe- 
cialists those children who give evidence of poor physique. 

Many of our wards have lacked, previous to their commit- 
ment to our care, the ordinary school advantages supposed to 
be the right of every American child. For this reason it is 
often necessary to continue schooling beyond the fourteenth 
year, and the difficulty of finding free homes for these children 
engages our attention with increasing insistence. 

Four hundred and sixty-four children over fourteen years of 
age are attending school. The following table shows their con- 
dition as to support : —

Such children as indicated above require the most expert 
care that their condition may be made as nearly normal as pos- 
sible. All resources of the community must be enlisted to se- 
cure homes fitted to the peculiar individual needs. Trained 
and experienced visitors must be engaged for the service, and 
these visitors must be given fevrer children to care for that 
they may do more intensive vs^ork. If our children are to be 
law-abiding, good citizens who will be economically valuable, 
we must see to it that they are fitted physically, mentally, and 
intellectually to earn an honest living. 

The division of older girls has departed during the past year 
from the district plan still in vogue with the older boys and 
with children under self-supporting age. Each visitor is now 
responsible for a certain number of girls and follows these girls 
wherever they may be. In this way greater individual knowl- 
edge is reached and good results are already noted. Fewer 
relocations have occurred and a more sympathetic understanding 
has been established. The abnormal cases have been recog- 
nized in a considerable number of instances, and these have 
been removed from community life. With only the more 
nearly normal girls left to deal with, a more promising outlook 
presents itself, and constructive work is possible. High school 
education for 26, and a college education for 1, is being given. 
Three girls are taking regular courses for professional nurses, 
3 are teachers, and other exceptional opportunities are sought 
as the girls show enough initiative and co-operation to war- 
rant the experiment. The results of fewer wards per visitor 
in this department than in any other justifies the hope that 
before long this decrease may extend to all departments. 

Eighteen girls have married during the year, 11 with our 
knowledge and consent, and 7 without that consent. One run- 
away match has already resulted in a separation with nonsup- 
port proceedings, in which we have taken an active part. Mar- 
ried girls are no longer discharged from our custody until their 
majority. The case just noted indicates the possibilities of the 
value of thus continuing our care. When trouble comes help- 
ful assistance may be rendered, and if things run smoothly we 
are still advisers and friends. 

Of a group of about 500 older girls, 15 have become mothers 



Part L] GEXER.IL WORK OF THE BOARD.

during the year, only 3 of whom are married. Eight of them 
are feeble-minded or moral delinquents, and 3 were under the 
age of consent (16 years) when thej became pregnant. 

Effort is made to prosecute the man responsible for the girl's 
condition; in a few instances our persuasions or court action 
have brought tangible results, and money is being paid regu- 
larly, by the men involved, towards the support of children bom 
out of wedlock. It is a difficult matter to fasten this responsi- 
bility in many cases, particularly when mental deficiency is evi- 
denced in the girl. Again, we have found boys of seventeen and 
eighteen to be responsible, and the courts have been loath to hold 
such to any high degree of responsibility. 

The following tables, concerning the several classes of the 
Board's children, are self-explanatory : —

of the year 1910, 51 licenses were granted to establish and keep 
for two years lying-in hospitals in 33 cities and towns. Four- 
teen of these were granted to corporations, 11 to physicians, 2-i 
to nurses, and 2 to masters of almshouses. 

Eight licenses in 8 cities and towns were voluntarily surren- 
dered and cancelled. 

One hundred and thirty-nine licenses remained in force No- 
vember 30, 1911, located in 80 cities and towns. 

TuiTiox OF Children under the Care axd Con'trol of 

THE Board. 

Section -1 of chapter 44 of the Revised Laws provides that, 
^* For the tuition in the public schools in any city or town of a 
child between the ages of five and fifteen years who shall l>e 
placed elsewhere than in his own home by the state board of 
charity ... or kept under the control of . . . said board in 
said city or town, the commonwealth shall pay to said city or 
town . . . fifty cents for each week of five days, or major part 
thereof, of attendance of every such child in the public schools. 
For the transportation to and from a public school of any child 
whose tuition is payable by the commonwealth . . . the com- 
monwealth . . . shall pay to the city or town furnishing such 
transportation, for each week of five days or major part thereof, 
an amount equal to the average amount for each child paid by 
said city or town per week for the transportation of children to 
and from school over the route by which such child is conveyed."

Immigration. 

On December 31, 1910, pursuant to tlie notice of I^ovember 
21, 1910, from the Federal Government to the Board, quoted 
in the Board's last report, the contract of August 9, 1910, for 
the support of indigent alien immigrants was terminated. For 
the first month of the year, therefore, all such cases of liability 
for support were adjusted according to the terms of the contract, 
but for the remaining eleven months, according to the terms laid 
down by the Federal Department of Commerce and Labor. 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 



135 



These terms are embodied chiefly in Rule 39, which contem- 
plates the payment by the Federal Government of hospital 
charges on account of aliens who become public charges from 
causes arising subsequent to landing, only in the event that 
deportation is accomplished at government expense and with 
the consent of the alien concerned. In regard to cases wherein 
the cause of distress ai'ose prior to landing, no reimbursement is 
made unless deportation is actually effected. 

Under the operation of the contract and these rules, the Board 
reported to the Commissioner of Immigration, during the year 
ending !N'ovember 30, 1911, 82 cases of immigrants who had 
fallen into distress, of which 32 were verified and allowed. Of 
the remaining 50, 13 were not verified, 7 were discharged from 
hospital before investigation by the United States officials, 1 was 
withdrawn, 5 were paid by relatives or friends, 3 died, 5 were 
not landed within the year, 4 absconded, and 12 cases were not 
allowed. Of the 32 cases allowed, 11 were Boston landings, 
16, New York, 2, Halifax, N. S., 2, Portland, Me., and 1, New 
Bedford. The amount received by the Board and transmitted 
to the Treasurer of the Commonwealth during the year was 
$2,871.36. This covered 80 cases, as follows: —

136 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

Heretofore the Board has inserted in its reports a detailed 
tabulation of alien immigrant arrivals and their classification. 
With the increasing scope and availability of the Federal re- 
ports on this same subject, it seems no longer advisable to 
duplicate data which, though of vital importance to the people 
of Massachusetts, does in fact now refer wholly to the opera- 
tions of Federal officers and are readily available from Federal 
sources. These tables are therefore discontinued.

Part II 



Charitable Corporations 



CHAEITABLE COEPOEATIOXS. 



Investigation of Charitable Organizations seeking Incorporation. 

Chapter 181 of the Acts of 1910 requires the Board to in- 
vestigatCj give public hearing, and report its findings to the 
Secretary of the Commonwealth, in all cases of charitable or- 
ganizations which seek incorporation. The text of the act is as 
follows : — 

Acts of 1910, Chapter ISl. 

Sectiox 1. Before making and issuing a certificate for the iucor- 
poration of a chaiitable corporation the secretary of the commonwealth 
shall also foi^ward such statement as is described in the preceding sec- 
tion to the state board of charity, which shall immediately make an 
investigation as to the persons who have asked to be incorporated 
and as to the purposes of the incorporation, and any other material 
facts relative thereto, and shall give them a public hearing, notice of 
which shall be published once a week for three successive weeks in 
some paper published in the county in which the corporation is to 
have its principal office or rooms, and if said office or rooms are to 
be in Boston, in some Boston daily paper, the last publication to be 
at least three days before the day set for the hearing, and shall forth- 
with report to the secretary of the commonwealth all the facts ascer- 
tained by it. If it appears to the secretary of the commonwealth from 
said report or otherwise that the probable purpose of the formation 
of the proposed corporation is to cover any illegal business, or that 
the persons asking for incorjDoration are not suitable persons, from 
lack of financial ability or from any other cause, he shall refuse to 
issue his certificate. If he refuses to issue his certificate, the persons 
asking to be incorporated maj^ appeal to the superior court, which 
shall hear the case and finally determine whether or not the certificate 
of incorporation shall be issued. 

Section 2. This act shall take effect upon its passage. 

During the year ending Xovember 30, 1911, the Board has 
investigated^ given hearings, and reported npon 50 applications 
for charters noted below. In 2 other cases the petitions were 
withdrawn during investigation and before report.

Following closely the trend of the Board's reports, 37 of the 
above petitions have been granted and charters issued, while 
13, or 26 per cent., have been refused. 

The law has proved salutary. Fewer applications have been 
made which would not stand investigation: 13 having been re- 
fused during the past twelve months as compared with 13 
which were refused during the nine months which elapsed be- 
tween the passage of the law and the beginning of the last fiscal 
year (March T, 1910, to Xovember 30, 1910). 



Inspection of Charitable Corporations. 

Chapter 379 of the Acts of 1909 requires the State Board of 
Charity to make annual inspection of charitable corporations 
which consent to said inspection. The text of the act is as fol- 
lows : — 

Acts of 1909, Chapter 379. 

Section 1. The state board of charity, upon the request or with 
the consent of a charitable corporation which, under the provisions of 
section fourteen of chapter eighty-four of the Revised Laws, as 
amended by chapter four hundred and two of the acts of the year 
nineteen hundred and three, is required to make an annual report to 
said board, shall, at least once in every year, visit and inspect the in- 
stitution or investigate the work of such corporation. 

Section 2. This act shall take effect upon its. passage. 



vi STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

Inspection, in order to be thorough and efficient, within the 
spirit of this law, can be secured only through the work of 
skilled agents and with complete good will and desire for co- 
operation on the part of the charities inspected. The machinery 
for carrying out the provisions of the act has therefore been 
developed gradually and with great care. For the first ten 
months of the year the Board has had the services of one 
inspector, and for the remaining two months of two inspectors. 

One hundred and sixty-nine charitable corporations have 
been inspected. This number comprises about 26 per cent, of 
all the corporations reporting to this Board in 1910. 

These 169 societies may be classified as follows: — 

1. Not charitable, 20 

2. Badly managed charities, 17 

3. Fairly well-managed charities, 68 

4. Well-managed charities, 64 

Total, 169 

Of the number visited, 37, or 22 per cent., are charac- 
terized either as noncharitable societies, or badly-managed 
charities. The public should bear in mind that a statement 
by a corporation that it has been inspected by this Board does 
not necessarily mean that such society has the Board's approval. 
It does mean, however, that the Board has in its possession 
certain facts in regard to each society inspected, which may or 
may not be favorable to the character of the society. 

1. TWEISTTY COKPOEATIOXS XOT ChAEITABLE THOUGH POS- 
SESSING Charters for Charitable Work. 

Six of these societies are dispensaries which were found to 
be private business enterprises. They are using their charitable 
charters as a blind in order to get subscriptions and bequests 
from the public, as well as to trick ignorant persons into the 
belief that their rates, standard of treatment, and general plan 
of work are in accord with those of reputable medical charities. 



Part IL] CHARITABLE CORPORATIONS. vu 

Their boards of directors are composed of '^ dummies." The 
prices charged for medicine are far above cost. Where house 
caUs are made the charge is usually $1, aud with few excep- 
tions these calls are attended to by students. All the profits 
go to the active member of the board who is confidentially known 
as the '* owner '' of the bogus charity. 

Two hospitals are private business enterprises. One is in 
active operation and is a poorly equipped, dirty place, where 
slack methods are said to result in cases of sepsis. The other 
has no hospital equipment other than a room with two beds on 
the second fioor ; there was no heat except from the stove in the 
adjoining kitchen ; the bathttib was disconnected and there were 
no attendants except the caretaker. Apparently the only reason 
for keeping up the farce is to secure exemption from taxes on 
the building. 

Three associations, which provide fresh-air trips and summer 
vacations for children and adults, are private schemes to benefit 
the individuals in charge. 

One of these provides sleeping tents on the grounds of a sum- 
mer hotel, of which the promoter is a part owner, charging the 
^' beneficiaries " a sufiicient amount for table board at the hotel 
to yield a fair profit. The '' beneficiaries " are, as a rule, self- 
supporting teachers and nurses, who have good reason to think 
they have paid the full cost. 

Another provides an outing of five and one-half days to a 
handful of children at a time. A concert and advertising pro- 
gram yield a substantial stim which is equally divided between 
the two collectors and the promoter. The gross amount raised 
annually would yield from $2 to $3 per day for each child, 
claimed as a beneficiary, for the period of his outing, yet there 
is no balance on hand at the end of the year. 

The third scheme of this sort is largely limited to one ex- 
cursion a year, and the schemer and his collector appear to be the 
chief beneficiaries. So plausible is he that this *' charity " has 
recently been left a large bequest. 

Two other societies, whose purpose is not here stated because 
they are the only ones of their kind which were visited, are 
soliciting public funds without rendering any real service in 



viii STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

return. One is merely for sociability while the other is preyed 
upon by two collectors who get 50 per cent, commissions. It was 
with difficulty that any of the latter's officers, with one exception, 
could be got to admit his connection with the society. 

Two societies having charters for charitable purposes offer 
the services of physicians to members paying 10 cents a week. 
Both are run for private gain, one promoter employing a broken 
victim of bad habits to render such medical service. 

Four other societies organized for charitable purposes under 
chapter 125 were found to be, respectively, a Jewish synagogue, 
which should have been formed under the law relating to bodies 
for religious worship (chapter 36) ; a fraternal benefit society, 
which should have been organized imder the insurance law 
(chapter 119^) ; an association which lends money on collateral; 
and another which seems to have little or no purpose beyond 
holding some stock of an affiliated business concern free from 
taxation. 

The last corporation in this gi'oup runs what it is pleased to 
caU an orphan asylum. This is a ramshackle building with 8 
children, 2 of them girls about seventeen or eighteen years of 
age. All the persons interested in the place belong to a sect of 
apparently low moral standards. They meet for so-called re- 
ligious worship, and all their activities are conducted under a 
charter issued for church purposes. Twelve collectors give 
their whole time to the work of gathering funds for the " orphan 
asylum." The corpoi^ation is exempted from taxation on the 
property used as an " orphan asylum," although it has no char- 
ter for charitable purposes. 

2. Sevexteex Badly Maxaged Charities. 
In this category are 7 homes for children, 3 of them situated 
in one city in eastern Massachusetts. All 7 appear to have un- 
intelligent or neglectful boards of management. Practically no 
investigation is made of applicants, so that admissions are in- 
discriminate, and families are in danger of being broken up or 
unwisely deprived of their responsibility to support the children. 
Four have too many children for the size of the house and the 
sleeping-rooms are badly overcrowded. 

1 Superseded by Chapter 628 of the Acts of 1911. 



Part IL] CHARITABLE CORPORATIONS. ix 

In two of these institutions, where the children do not attend 
the public school, the teachers are foreigners, some of whom 
cannot speak English, while others speak it imperfectly. The 
result is that the children in these homes are not receiving the 
instruction provided for bv our State law.^ Two of the homes, 
which are located in busy sections of the city, allow their chil- 
dren to play in the streets. 

Another home depends almost wholly upon the daily collec- 
tions of food made by the children at the doors of private houses, 
boarding houses, restaurants and stores. As a result, the chil- 
dren are fed upon a miscellaneous assortment of articles, appall- 
ing in their indigestible variety. 

One home contains 29 persons as follows : the superintendent 
and his wife — who is the matron — and their thi-ee children ; 
the wife's father and mother; 3 women, who do the domestic 
work, and one woman who collects for the home, together with 
their 11 children, who are boarded as partial payment for the 
mothers' services ; and 7 children who are strictly inmates, — a 
total of 22 persons maintained by the public to keep up an insti- 
tution for the remaining 7. A percentage of the collections goes 
to the national organization under whose auspices the home 
is run. 

The last two are so poorly managed that probably nothing 
short of a total change in the personnel of the officers in charge 
would have any effect in bettering conditions. 

The total property held by these 7 child-caring institutions 
amounts to $220,000, while the estimated daily average of chil- 
dren cared for by them is about 494, or an average of about 
$44,500 invested funds for each 100 children. 

Ten other charities which are classed as badly managed are: 
engaged in giving medical assistance (S). vacations (3), general 
relief (2), institutional work with wayward girls (1), and 
defectives (1). 

The chief difficulty with 8 of the 10 is that each is practically 
run by one person, the directors appearing to be either ignorant 

' Revised Laws, chapter 44, section 2: " ... school committees shall approve a private 
school only when the instruction in all the studies required by law is in the English language, 
and when they are satisfied that such instruction equals in thoroughness and efficiency and in 
the progress made therein the instruction in the public schools in the same city or town; but 
they shall not refuse to approve a private school on account of the religious teaching therein." 



X STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

of charitable methods or neglectful of their responsibility. In 
addition, one spends much of its income for carriages for its 
officials at funerals ; 2 pay their collectors 20 and 33 per cent, 
commissions; another gives its agent no stated salary, paying 
her whatever the income v^ill afford, leaving her practically to 
do all the work and collect the funds in order to get a living. 

3. Sixty-eight Fairly Well-makaged Charities. 

Sixty-eight charities may be classified as fairly well managed. 
Their boards of directors are, as a rule, interested in the work, 
and are honestly desirous of conducting first-class charities. 
With some changes in method many of them might achieve 
their ideals. 

The 7 day nurseries included in this division are good ex- 
amples of improvable institutions. All have good-sized build- 
ings, yet the crib rooms in 5 are too crowded to be healthful. 
In one, the children were taking their naps in chairs, their 
heads resting on a table, ^ot one of them makes adequate in- 
vestigation into the home conditions of the children aided. 
Children are readily taken if the mother decides she must work 
outside of the home, and the question whether this is the best 
course in any given case does not appear to be skillfully met. 
There is little co-operation with other agencies, whose assistance 
might render it unnecessary for the mother to leave her home 
in search of work. Such an indiscriminate system of admis- 
sions tends to encourage the able-bodied but unwilling husband 
to shift the burden of the family upon the mother and to dis- 
integrate the home. 

In this division, also, are 15 children's societies. One has no 
institution or home, but places its children out. The others 
have boarding homes. All profess to deal with normal children. 
Two take also delinquent boys, but make no separation between 
them and the dependents. Two societies place out cases from 
their institutions without adequate supervision. One home 
claims to give industrial training, but offers none that merits 
the name. In 3, the sleeping-rooms are very much overcrowded. 
In at least 3, the diet is not sufficiently nourishing, either be- 



Part IL] CHARITABLE CORPORATIONS. xi 

cause of the lack of milk, or through excessive prominence given 
to bakers' bread. One home which is large enough to accommo- 
date 10 children, has had not over 6, and part of the year but 3, 
children. This has proved a particularly expensive charity to 
maintain. 

Eight homes provide instruction for their children instead of 
sending them to the public schools. Five of these 8 institutions 
admit children without a thorough medical examination, and 
none of them has any system of medical inspection. One so- 
ciety, which uses the public schools, keeps the older girls at 
hame, each in turn, to assist with the younger children, thus 
depriving them of a portion of their schooling in order to econo- 
mize in paid workers. 

The real estate and personal j)roperty owned by the 14 
charities having institutions or homes for children in this 
division amount to $2,300,378. The daily average number of 
children cared for is estimated at 1,540, an average of $149,375 
invested funds for each 100 children. Six of these societies 
had a total surplus of income over expenditure for their last 
fiscal year of about $65,000. 

The rest of the group of fairly well-managed societies may be 
divided as follows : 4 dispensaries, 2 hospitals, 7 homes for the 
aged, 4 which give summer vacations, and 29 others which offer 
general relief or help special cases. 

One society which gives work pays little to its workwomen 
in proportion to the prices obtained from the public for the 
finished product, and the cost of assisting its beneficiaries is 
rather high to be classed as good management. The apportion- 
ment of disbursements during the year was % to the work- 
women and % to management. The total expense was 96 per 
cent, of the sum of the amount received from sales, and the 
appraised value of the stock on hand. 

The chief criticism to be made of these agencies is the lack of 
adequate investigation into the needs of applicants, the absence 
of medical examination where the need for it exists, and the 
lack of co-operation, resulting from too few or an entire ab- 
sence of well-trained workers. !Many societies fail to grasp 



xii STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

the whole problem and appear content to deal solely with the 
small part of it which an insufficient investigation reveals. The 
danger of such methods lies in the duplication of work, the 
pauperization of beneficiaries, the breaking up of families, and 
the imposition which may be practiced upon the donating public. 

4. Sixty-four Well-managed Charities. 

In the last division are 64 charities classed as well managed. 
This number includes 7 day nurseries, 12 children's societies 
(4 having no institutions and 3 combining placing-out work 
with institutional care), 3 dispensaries, 11 hospitals, 10 homes 
for the aged, and 21 other societies which give assistance of 
various kinds. ISTine of the latter have institutions. 

These 64 societies measure up in a reasonable degTee to the 
standard of well-managed charities. Their institutions are, 
as a rule, adapted to their use and are properly equipped. 
Their managers realize the advantage of employing trained 
workers and the necessity for intelligent methods which shall 
adequately aid without encouraging the individual to accept 
doles or to fall into permanent dependency. 

To deserve the term " well-managed " a society should be 
administered by the best generally accepted methods, and its 
workers should combine sympathy with an understanding of 
charitable problems. This comes with special training. Another 
salient requirement is that the society should have an intelligent 
board of managers who truly manage its affairs, who procure 
sufficient funds for its purposes, and are willing to co-operate 
with all other agencies. 

When a society is so poorly supported that efficiency can- 
not be maintained, it is a pity it should continue in existence. 
On the other hand, many societies which fall below the stand- 
ard are not suffering so much from lack of funds as from 
absence of intelligent methods skillfully applied. Their man- 
agers adhere to the outworn theories of charitable work and 
are apt to employ persons who have had little or no special 
training and are therefore not likely to be well informed as to 
the best methods. 



Part IL] CHARITABLE CORPORATIONS. xiii 

Annual Reports of Charitable Corporations. 

The law provides that the Board shall receive annual reports 
of all charitable corporations whose personal property is exempt 
from taxation. The text of the law is as follows : — 

Revised Laws, Chapter 84, Sectiox 14, amended by Chapter 402, 

Acts of 1903. 
A charitable corporation whose personal property is exempt from 
taxation under the provisions of clause three of section five of chap- 
ter twelve shall annually, on or before the first day of November, 
make to the state board of charity a written or printed report for its 
last financial year, showing its property, its receipts and expenditures, 
the whole number and the average number of its beneficiaries and 
such other infonnation as the board may require. 

Of the 742 corporations whose returns were called for during 
the last official year, 66 failed to respond.
